Empowering Learners Through Problem Based Learning
We are excited to have partner consultant and author Michael McDowell leading our May TCC Master Class Series webinar, “Empowering Learners Through Problem Based Learning”.
Do you find that instruction is not working for some students? Do you see a pattern of learners struggling to apply concepts and skills in “the real world”?
Sometimes we are so accustomed to a certain percentage of students failing to succeed in classes and struggling to apply what they learn in the “the real world,” that we accept it as given.
To change this trend, we must change how students are learning.
The innovation necessary to change these outcomes can be intimidating, but through effective collaboration, teachers can implement problem-based learning practices that engage and empower learners.
On Thursday, May 21st, Michael McDowell is going to provide an overview of the design principles and practical steps of implementing Rigorous PBL by Design. He has combined lessons from the Visible Learning Research and years of practical experience in inquiry-based classrooms to refine this approach. The results are students who can tackle real-world problems, meet and exceed academic goals, and have confidence in their own learning and their ability to work with others.
Join Michael to shift the narrative from “what works” to “what works best for all students today and tomorrow” using:
strategies that enable students to develop ownership of their learning
approaches to learn and apply content in real-world situations
steps to effectively collaborate in a culture of innovation
