Event Description

Learn to Utilize Project-Based Learning (PBL) to Promote Students’ Long-Term Success

There's a crucial need to align classroom instruction to the needs of the workforce, higher education, and the community. Through authentic learning experiences that dive deep into subject matter, both academic and Career and Technical Education (CTE) educators can guide students to be global citizens, creative thinkers, and well-prepared members of college communities and the workplace. To accomplish this, schools must introduce students to relevant and exciting career pathways that will engage and promote learning—for the long term. The Project-Based Learning (PBL) instructional approach is achieving quantifiable success with that objective.

Join PBL expert, Jorge Valenzuela, to learn how your school can get started with—or enhance your current practice of—relying on PBL to support student progress. Jorge will share from-the-classroom examples, best practices, and resources for taking your instruction deeper—for offering students a learning experience that invites thoughtful investigation, problem-solving, constructive critique, and connection to the wider world. Plus, he will provide insights and specific guidance on how any teacher can begin using PBL effectively. This session will highlight exemplary programs and models, as well as useful resources, for how to teach students to tackle real-world issues, make their own decisions, and learn to overcome challenges in their work.

Attend this session if your school or district is focused on preparing students for future success-both in academics and in their future careers. The session will list practical steps for defining relevant career pathways specific to your state or region—and for forging essential collaborative relationships with higher education, business partners, and your local community. The session will further discuss how to take advantage of these partnerships in the classroom using PBL. So bring your business partners, too!
