The Center for Project-Based Learning was launched in January 2016 at the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) annual meeting. Through the Center, faculty and administrators from colleges and universities around the world benefit from more than 40 years of WPI’s experience and expertise in project-based learning to apply toward their efforts, whether it’s to implement, improve, evaluate, or integrate project-based learning on their campuses. The Center also supports the continued development of expertise and excellence in project-based pedagogy on the WPI campus. The range of products and services include an annual Institute on Project-Based Learning, custom workshops and seminars, consultations, and project-based learning resources.
