Promoting Diversity Through Project-Based Learning

High schools, colleges, and universities are working to introduce problem-based and project-based learning into curricula. We have successfully implemented a framework for identifying clients and projects from both industry and academia, mapping projects to learning objectives and students’ interests, and allowing faculty to streamline project management processes. This problem solver session will demonstrate how such a project management framework can be applied in virtually any domain, both in high school and in higher education, to promote collaboration between diverse populations. We will share our workflows, templates, documents, and personal experience with the session participants.
