Join Kathy Schrock and project based learning experts Ginger Lewman and Cynthia Treichler as they discuss authentic learning models and talk about successful practices that can be used to support whichever pedagogical model you would like to implement!
What types of project based learning is there and how does one decide which to use? What is authentic learning? What kinds of resources are available to support teachers who want to teach using PBL? Are there any projects that can serve as models for people getting started?
