'Intro to PBL'
ITUE sponsors January workshop on problem-based learning
1:55 p.m., Dec. 4, 2012--The University of Delaware Institute for Transforming Undergraduate Education will sponsor an introductory workshop on problem-based learning Jan. 23-25 on the campus in Newark.
The workshop will focus on educators who are interested in learning more about problem-based learning (PBL).
The workshop will demonstrate problem-based learning and model ways that PBL can be used effectively in all disciplines, in upper and lower division courses, in public schools or colleges, and in classes of all sizes.
Organizers will begin with a problem and participants will work in teams to experience firsthand what this instructional approach entails.
Work will then move to the main focus of the program -- writing effective problem-based materials. A goal is that participants will leave the session with new or revised problems for use in their courses.
To learn more about PBL, visit the PBL@UD website.
The workshop is free to UD faculty and staff and public school teachers. For all others, the cost is $295.
Those who are interested in participating in the workshop are encouraged to register early so that organizers can reserve seats accordingly.
The reservation deadline is Jan. 4.
To register, complete the registration form and submit payments by mail.
