Live Session: Project-Based Learning: Skills that Matter through an Approach that Works!

DescriptionProject-based learning...isn’t that for kids? No! Adult educators can embrace this effective approach as well. Join us to learn from Dr. Patsy Egan how to ensure adults learn "skills that matter" in an academic, project-based setting.

Date/Time: Monday, November 8, 2021, 3:00 to 4:00pm ET (live session)

LINCS Community Group: Professional Development

Online registration is required to participate in the LINCS Event for Project Based Learning: Skills that Matter through an Approach that Works!


Is this webinar different than the one offered last week "An Approach that Works: Problem–Based Learning"?

Thanks ,


This Monday's session (11/8) is on Project-Based Learning. And, yes, it is different from Problem-Based Learning for which a session was hosted on Oct. 29. Teaching Skills that Matter is a comprehensive resource with tools available in the LINCS repository. Problem- and Project-Based Learning are two approaches to instruction for TSTM.

Problem-based learning: Uses complex, real-world problems as the vehicle for learners to explore new concepts and language.

Project-based learning: Uses an extended period of time to investigate and respond to an authentic, engaging, and complex question, problem, or challenge. (It usually results in a "product".)

Thank you very much for the question! Please join us Monday (11/8, 3-4 p.m. ET), along with your friends and colleagues to hear more about Project-Based Learning and examples of how it works.
