Better Together: Connecting Project-Based Learning & Competency-Based Education

And a webinar from the neo-liberals to conclude today’s blogging.

Web Version

Webinar- Better Together: Connecting Project-Based Learning & Competency-Based Education

As we seek to shift our education system toward competency-based education (CBE), project-based learning (PBL) offers a powerful, complementary strategy for greater student engagement and more authentic learning inside and outside the classroom, and vice versa. But how do CBE and PBL connect in actual implementation?

Please join us for a webinar on Wednesday, March 30, 2022 from 1:00 – 2:00 PM (ET); 10:00 – 11:00 AM (PT) to hear from experts at Lucas Education Research and Springpoint Schools , as well as a principal, teacher, and student from a high school that is implementing PBL and CBE together. Gain insights to advance project-based learning practices in your CBE-focused school, district, or other setting—as well as to support your PBL initiatives with competency-based education practices. The presentation will be immediately followed by a 30-minute optional breakout discussion to go deeper into classroom and school implementation of PBL and CBE.
