Missouri (Cape Girardeau) 2017 Open Workshop

Project-Based Learning Institute : June 12-15

The Southeast RPDC (Southeast Regional Professional Development Center) is partnering with Magnify Learning from Indiana for a four-day Project Based
Learning Institute on June 12-15, 2017. Magnify Learning was created to increase the engagement and success of K-16 students through the utilization of high quality project based learning (PBL). This professional development is for K-16 educators, instructional coaches, and administrators who strive to bring 21st skills into their classrooms. School groups are encouraged to attend in order to work together toward the establishment of collaborative PBL systems designed to meet their particular school culture and needs. The daily hours for the June 12-15 Institute will be from 9 am to 4 pm with a light breakfast and lunch provided each day.
