Creating Student Engagement with Project Based Learning

Project Based Learning is dedicated to providing hands on learning experiences to students and is an excellent way to engage disinterested students.  It is closely tied to Common Core expectation and is grounded in the scientific method, collaboration, and community involvement.  Successful programs require schools to embrace a culture of creating cognitively engaging learning activities across all content areas, not just in science.

In this webinar educator and researcher Hans Sowder provides an overview of Project Based Learning (PBL), offers some practical strategies to get started, and discusses its potential impact on student learning.  His passion and insight into PBL has been gained through over 20 years of experience teaching science in Michigan schools and through his research and teaching at the University of Michigan where he is currently on the faculty.
