Event description
Are you a teacher interested in motivating your students more? Project Based Learning is a methodology that connects them with the world!

About this Event

This learning event is called "unconference" because the knowledge stems from the participants themselves and not lecturers, facilitators would ensure a good learning environment, guidance and resources.

This training is for educators who are either new or experienced to Project Based Learning (PBL) and want to understand it better and learn how they can integrate this methodology into their lessons and school curriculum. PBL instruction offers students an opportunity to be more engaged and motivated in the lessons, provides students with a deeper understanding of the topic, builds up key life skills like critical thinking, communication and cooperation and can potentially close the achievement gap by engaging lower-achieving students too.

The week schedule will be in a simplified form as follows:

Day 1: Teacher participants who apply for it present their PBL experiences and everyone engage in thought-provoking conversations and constructive feedback where to get new ideas.

Days 2-4: There are two intensive workshops to choose from, either PBL 101, for newbies in the PBL world and PBL 201, for the ones with some experience who want to go deeper and work on the design of more complex units with a coach.

Day 5: Presentation and feedback for the final product of each team of teachers.

The course uses PBL methodology itself so as participants can better learn it by experiencing it first hand and they have to create a PBL unit as the final product, present it and share it in this website as outcomes of the unconference.

Teachers will be exposed to regular reflection interactions, research, best practices and overall experiences with a common goal to understand and apply PBL instruction into a concrete final product, a PBL unit that will relate to their real teaching context. Participants will be presented with authentic thought-provoking projects, they will receive coaching on the ideation, design and implementation processes and will work in teams to create their own projects that they will present, receive feedback and take home to use it in their classes.

By the end of this course, participants will have gained greater insight into PBL projects for the classroom and how to integrate PBL into their lessons. They will become more confident in their own teaching, will learn how to brainstorm ideas on projects with a team of teachers and collaborate with peers to develop and implement them. They will create their own PBL unit to use in their classes..

The course fee 450 euros and it includes training for a total of 25 hours, Monday to Friday, from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm.
