High Quality Project Based Learning

One-third of Americans engage in project-based work. Schools are responding by implementing project based learning. The growing adoption of PBL is promising, but educators need a common definition for what is high quality. In hopes there is more equitable access to high quality PBL, 100+ educators from around the world created a Framework for High Quality PBL. Participants will hear from educators and students about how engaging in high quality projects has made a lasting impact on their lives.
