    • PBL 101 is BIE’s foundational three-day (consecutive, 7.0 hours per day, including lunch) onsite workshop. Based on BIE's model of Gold Standard PBL, the workshop provides participants with the skills and knowledge needed to design, assess and manage a rigorous, relevant, and standards-based project. The workshop models the project process. Facilitated by one of BIE's expert National Faculty, the workshop is a balanced blend of direct instruction, video analysis, hands-on work, resource sharing, and peer collaboration and feedback. Participants are actively engaged in project design, with the expectation that every teacher or teaching team will generate a project plan that receives formative feedback from both participants and BIE National Faculty.
    • PBL Leadership Academy is a three-day workshop for up to 40 instructional leaders and administrators per session, who may attend as leadership teams. This workshop engages leaders in exploring best practices in leading a school or district in the effective, sustainable implementation of Project Based Learning. Through a combination of direct instruction, video analysis and hands-on individual and group work, participants gain deeper understanding of high quality PBL and the structures and practices that allow this instructional approach to flourish. Facilitated by BIE's expert National Faculty, the workshops are hands-on, involve peer collaboration, and model PBL practice.
