Missouri (Springfield) 2018 Open Workshop


The Agency for Teaching, Leading, and Learning is partnering with Magnify Learning from Indiana for a four-day PBL Workshop on July 23-26, 2018. This 4-day workshop series is designed to increase engagement and academic success of K-12 students through the utilization of high quality project-based learning (PBL) classroom management techniques. The workshop will enable educators to better develop student personal and social skills required to succeed in their post secondary studies and in their careers. Participants will experience a project-based learning environment while learning the nuts and bolts of PBL, and leave this four day workshop with a fully vetted PBL unit ready to implement with confidence! Participants will be divided into an elementary and a secondary group to allow for targeted grade level/content design. The series will be led by a certified PBL certified elementary and secondary classroom teachers from Magnify Learning.  The daily hours for the workshop will be from 8:30 am-3:00 pm with breakfast provided. Lunch is on your own.
