Project-based Learning

Project Based Learning (PBL) is more than just a teaching method. It’s a revitalization of education for students so that they can develop intellectually and emotionally. By using real-world scenarios, challenges, and problems, students gain useful knowledge and skills that increase during their designated project periods. The goals of using complex questions or problems is to develop and enhance student learning by encouraging critical thinking, problem solving, teamwork and self-management.  The project’s proposed question drives students to make their own decisions, perform their own research, and review their own and fellow students’ process/projects.

In addition to finding resources, developing project timelines, and learning to overcome obstacles, students have the opportunity to publicly display their work. Displaying their completed projects in public gives the students the chance to grow their public speaking and presentation skills while explaining their project’s outcome to individuals outside of the classroom.
