Impact of Institute

Hear what Institute participants had to say about how the Institute helped to advance project-based learning initiatives on their campuses.

A Catalyst for Change – Advancing Project-based Learning on Your Campus

The Institute on Project-Based Learning brings together teams of faculty and administrators from colleges and universities around the globe to create action plans to advance project-based learning initiatives on their campuses. Institute teams work with experienced faculty coaches and workshop facilitators, while learning from project-based learning practitioners and from efforts at other campuses — and they leave the Institute energized and equipped with the proven materials and know-how to make tangible progress to integrate those concepts into their own curricular.

Whether looking to bring about institutional change to support project-based learning, or to make change in general education or in the major, in one department or across the campus — each team will be mentored by Institute faculty whose expertise aligns with the team’s needs to help in the development of curricular and organizational strategies tailored to their own institutions.

“The institute helped us refine how to be more intentional about project-based learning on our campus and how to make it more pervasive. We will pilot an eportfolio program in our first-year seminar to not only curate evidence of project-based work but to also foster critical reflection about this work.”
