Scaffolding Classroom Innovation through Project-Based Learning

Research has shown that when students engage in more intellectually challenging work, they also gain the skills that they need to succeed on more traditional forms of assessment. However, teachers often struggle with the process of “letting go” and empowering students to take ownership of the learning process. Project-Based Learning (PBL) offers one avenue for scaffolding teacher instructional design. In this session, we will explore the potential of using PBL as a process rather than a pathway to project and address the driving question: how do we encourage our students to become problem seekers versus problem solvers?
