PBL 101: Tuesday, June 21 - Thursday, June 23 (8 a.m.-3 p.m.)

Based on the Buck Institute for Education's model for Gold Standard PBL, this three-day workshop engages participants in learning how to design, assess and manage a rigorous, relevant, standards-focused project. The workshop models the project process. Facilitated by one of BIE's expert National Faculty, the workshop is a balanced blend of direct instruction, video analysis, hands-on work, resource sharing and peer collaboration. Participants have substantial time to plan their own project and receive formative feedback from peers and the facilitator.

Leadership Academy: Thursday, June 23 & Friday, June 24 (8 a.m.-3 p.m.)
(Exclusive to PBL Institutes and BIE conferences)

The Leadership Academy engages instructional leaders in exploring best practices in leading a school or district in the effective, sustainable implementation of Project Based Learning. Through a combination of direct instruction, video analysis and hands-on individual and group work, participants gain deeper understandings of high quality PBL and the structures that grow and improve this instructional approach across time.

Coaching Academy: Thursday, June 23 & Friday, June 24 (8 a.m.-3 p.m.)
(Exclusive to PBL Institutes and BIE conferences)

The Coaching Academy engages instructional coaches in best practices for providing sustained support to teachers using PBL. The academy focuses on strategies for coaches to support and enable high quality PBL design and instruction. Participants will review the essential elements of PBL through a coaching lens, access resources and protocols, learn coaching best practices and create deliverables to support their teachers.
