Welcome to the Center for Project Based Learning
Project Based Learning (PBL) begins with content-rich ideas and offers students, through a systematic method, the opportunity to learn through inquiry and discovery. These activities are generally collaborative as student groups move toward a specific learning purpose. Mastery of content must be demonstrated as students can direct their own learning through a series of decisions which creates a path to their end product.
Research confirms that students who learn the Project-Based Learning paradigm experience outcomes of substance and authenticity. It is often called engaged learning. Already used in the medical field for some time, new curriculum is being designed around additional areas of study and learning. Real world skills such as problem identification and resolution, peer-learning, presentation skill development, and inquiry prepare learners to enter the workplace with experience and advantage.
