Learn about the comprehensive, Research-based model for Project-based Learning from the Buck Institute for Education. The purpose of the 21st CCLC Initiative in PBL is to improve staff practices accross Wyoming so that we have a shared understanding of what high quality PBL looks like in practice. Learn about the three parts to Gold Standard PBL.
  1. Student Learning Goals
  2. Project Design Elements
  3. Project-based Teaching practices. 
After attending PBL in June of 2016, Kathleen and Lisa (in practice) have established PBL in programs and will share strategies that work for both student learning and professional development. Session attendees will receive tools and resources to supplement their current PBL efforts and for those new to PBL, a great foundation to launch your efforts.
