Project-based learning (PjBL) can serve as a key pedagogical approach for supporting broad learning goals such as critical thinking, design, professional skills, teamwork and collaboration, multidisciplinary integration, and lifelong learning. But deciding which particular goals are appropriate for a course, and designing and supporting projects in ways that promote these goals, can seem overwhelming to instructors. In this session, we will provide practical tools and guidance that help instructors make the shift from traditional to project-based learning, or to refine their existing projects to better support the desired learning outcomes.
