EDUC-5001-001 ST: Project Based Learning — Theory
Instructor: M. Henderson
Dates and Times: Tuesdays, January 8 to April 2, 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Location: Online Asynchronous, high speed internet connection required

This course will explore theoretical understandings of project-based learning — that is learning through authentic, inquiry-based, and rigorous teacher and learner-led learning experiences. As a learning community, participants will examine a variety of conceptualizations of project-based learning, they will deconstruct what we mean by a project, and they will investigate how we create school cultures based on projects. This course will also focus on practical implications of PBL, including assessment, the conflict between inquiry and competencies, accessibility for all learners, and engaging educators within your school.
This course is an elective in the General, School Counseling, and Special Education streams.
