Project-based learning involves facing complex tasks based on driving questions or real-world issues, engaging students in designing, solving problems, making decisions and conducting research tasks. As a teacher specialised in PBL, you will be able to give your students the possibility to work autonomously, guided in the process, for extended periods of time. Each project should be ending with a real product and/or public presentation and, furthermore, with an impact in their communities.
Throughout this course, you will incorporate the foundational concepts of Project Based Learning, gain practical skills (all hands on deck) and develop a PBL lesson plan or project to implement in your school/classroom. The main goal of this proposal is to empower you as a teacher with 21st century skills, sharing your experiences with teachers and professionals from other countries, and living a unique experience abroad.
The participant knows how to:
We will use a mixture between theoretical and workshops training based on real-life examples. Different strategies (such as Flipped Classroom and Project Based Learning itself) enable the participants to develop and to create their solutions for their own professional needs and the needs of their students. During the course, they will have the opportunity to learn (and also teach) alongside other colleagues from different countries and discuss their own projects and experiences.
The course includes both individual and team work. Throughout the classroom sessions, maximum advantage is taken of tools such as the interactive screen for projecting videos and digital material, and the tables and chairs for setting up the furniture (in the form of an auditorium, forum, coworking, etc.), generating different interchange situations. We will be learning by doing both on laptops with specific software as well as with analogical materials such as markers, post-its, whiteboards, and poster boards.
One day of the week, a didactic outing called "Museums Day" is proposed, where emblematic spaces of the city are visited –related to the subject of the course and the speciality of the teachers– in order to encourage creativity, connections and exchanges with the local area.
