Course Syllabus

Project Based Learning will prepare educators to meet the needs of our changing 21st Century Society. Research shows that Project Based Learning not only improves critical thinking, but improves scores on high- stakes tests. This course will help teachers to be better prepared to focus their teaching around real world problems that will engage and enhance student learning. Most importantly, by implementing Project Based Learning into the classroom students will be more prepared for the complex problems of the world around them at the same time as improving their higher level thinking skills.
