As educators, we know that challenges make learning last, and so we bake them into our teaching in big ways and small. Do the challenges, questions, and problems we pose to our students involve all the essential components for deep learning and growth? Are they building critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, and communication skills as well as deep content knowledge?
PBL or Project-Based Learning is a research-informed pedagogical strategy that has transformed the way undergraduates at other institutions embrace their education. Come hear how a team of Middlebury faculty and staff experienced PBL on a road trip last summer. At this lunchtime event, we also welcome you to explore with us the PBL framework for developing high quality projects for your courses and how it compares to – and might enhance – the many other pedagogical approaches that already exist on our campus.
RSVP Lunch will be available at 12:15 in the CTLR Lounge, and the roundtable conversation will begin shortly thereafter.
The Academic Roundtable is a collaboration between the Center for Teaching, Learning & Research and Davis Family Library.
