Workshop 3: Encouraging self-directed learning and self-efficacy through project based learning

This final workshop in the series transfers the responsibility of choosing resources and procedures for answering a question, solving a problem or producing a project to the student. Through the use of universal concepts that expand student learning across disciplines, students utilize Depth & Complexity and Content Imperatives prompts to focus and guide their learning. Participants will prepare a project based lesson.
