PBL World is coming to Napa Valley, California, June 13-16, 2016. The conference includes exemplary workshops, inspiring keynote speakers, and community building opportunities to catalyze transformational change in teaching and learning. We bring together dedicated teachers, instructional coaches, and school leaders to build their capacity for implementing and sustaining Gold Standard Project Based Learning in the communities they serve.

PBL World features Buck Institute for Education's Gold Standard PBL 101 Workshop, which provides participants with the skills and knowledge needed to design, assess, and manage a rigorous, relevant, and standards-based project. We will also be offering BIE's popular Leadership Academy, Coaching Academy, and PBL 201 sessions. During the Community of Practice Day on Monday, join fellow PBL travelers for speakers and sessions that will Inspire What is Possible with PBL.
