NEED AND READINESS
What is the current state of project-based learning on your campus? What has motivated a desire for additional action related to project-based learning? Which aspects of project-based learning are you hoping to learn about and implement?
What high-priority tasks do you expect your team to work on during the Institute? These should be the tasks that, if advanced substantially during the Institute, would lead your team and colleagues to judge your efforts a success.
In what ways do your team members reflect the opportunities for implementing project-based learning on your campus? How do they reflect the diversity and the various interest groups on your campus?
Educators from many different types of institutions will be participating, and this is a great opportunity for institutions to learn from one another. What perspective do you believe your team can bring to the Institute that will be of interest to other participants?
Applications will be considered based on the extent to which the team is likely to benefit from the Institute and advance its project-based learning initiatives. Reviewers will also consider a number of other factors, such as institutional type and project focus, to ensure a diverse group of participants who will complement and benefit from each other.
