Project Based Learning


Learning Forward Virginia (LFVA) is excited to bring Project Based Learning to Virginia. Project Based Learning (PBL) is a student-centered pedagogy that involves a dynamic classroom approach in which students acquire a deeper knowledge through active exploration of real-world challenges and problems. Students learn about a subject by working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to an authentic, engaging, and complex question, challenge, or problem.

PBL cares about our mission to educate all by integrating knowing and doing. Students work to uncover understandings of content as opposed to serving as bystanders while the teacher covers curriculum through lectures, worksheets, and disconnected tasks.

Educators will register for one of the following three-day workshops:
This workshop provides participants with the skills and knowledge needed to design assess and manage a rigorous, relevant, and standards-based project.
COACH: Coaching Academy
A dynamic workshop that engages instructional coaches in best practices for providing sustained support for teachers to enable high quality PBL design and instruction.
LEAD: Leadership Academy
The academy engages leaders in exploring best practices in leading a school or district in the effective, sustainable implementation of Project Based Learning.
