2021 Institute

Due to the continuing uncertainties posed by COVID-19, we will once again be hosting our 2021 Institute on Project-Based Learning as a synchronous, online event.  In this format, the Institute will remain a 2.5 day event running from June 15-18 with times selected to accommodate participants across time zones.

While the format may be different, much will remain the same. Key programming and features will continue: dedicated coaches for each team, concurrent workshops on a variety of PBL related topics (including PBL online), plenaries and access to experts, all designed to help your team create a realistic, actionable plan for your PBL implementation. As important, participants will have opportunities to present their campus action plans to the other teams and Institute Faculty—a signature component of the Institute.

Be assured that we’ve taken care to craft each day to provide multiple opportunities for high-quality interaction, learning and creating, while not over-taxing participants.

Thanks for all your input and assistance in helping us reinvent this event and we look forward to connecting virtually in June.

Until then, we wish you continued strength and courage in these most challenging times.

Applications accepted through March 10, 2021.
