A Roadmap to Empowering Learners with PBL

Project-based learning is learner-centered, offering students more voice, choice, authenticity, engagement, and ownership than traditional projects. In project-based learning (PBL), students develop unique solutions to meaningful, real-world problems, learning key understandings and skills during their work on the project, not before.  Integrating PBL into classroom practice requires a desire to empower students in our global and digital society, an adventurous spirit and a bit of planning. eMints eLearning for Educators is offering “Empowering Learners with PBL”, a professional development course which will provide you with the tools and skills you need to plan and implement PBL experiences in your classroom.
