Build PBL capability at your school

Kick-start your PBL journey with eduSTEM’s full-day and half-day PBL training.

Starting PBL can often feel like taking the first steps in a foreign country: unfamiliar, exciting, and downright intimidating! eduSTEM’s PBL Kick-start Training helps teachers taking their first steps into PBL develop the confidence and skills to run a successful student-driven project. Alternatively, for those schools with a few projects under their belts, eduSTEM’s PBL Ramp-up Training helps teachers fine-tune their projects and classroom delivery to take their PBL implementation to the next level.

PBL Kick-start

Overview:

You don’t learn to ride a bike through a lecture, and it is the same with PBL. The best way to learn how to implement PBL in the classroom is to actually be immersed in a project yourself. In PBL Kick-start we immerse staff in a project experience, allowing teachers to understand the project from the perspective of their students, whilst mastering the fundamentals of PBL delivery.   

What's covered?

  • An introduction to PBL: Why use PBL and what you can expect in the PBL journey

  • Framing the problem: How to get students to buy in to and engage with the project

  • Introduction to design thinking: Each phase of eduSTEM’s design thinking process is introduced, and key components modelled in the classroom

  • Managing the classroom: How to help students drive their own learning across a project

  • Assessment: How to assess students’ progress through the project

  • Trouble-shooting: Understand the key risk points in a project, the types of problems normally encountered, and how to troubleshoot them

  • Project Showcase: How to set up and run the final showcase to blow your school community away!
