Program: Project Based Learning

Audience: Teachers, Administrators and instructional support staff

Dates: 7/30/2018 to 8/3/2018

Project Based Learning (PBL) is a lot more than "doing projects." This five-day workshop will provide an opportunity to explore how projects can become the driving force behind the delivery of your entire curriculum instead of just an end of unit assessment. PBL can help make our classrooms more relevant and rigorous while teaching crucial skills like collaboration, critical thinking, and communication! Participants will have opportunities to experience part of a PBL unit, work to begin designing their own standards-aligned units, and explore how to use Google applications and other free software to manage the process. Teachers who are new to PBL will gain a strong enough foundation to begin integrating projects into their work this year, while experienced teachers will be able to explore new subtleties and take their work to the next level. Individuals may submit personal checks to HFM BOCES if Distict or BOCES is not paying. Otherwise, Districts or Local BOCES will be billed by HFM BOCES.
