Project Based Learning in the Classroom: Setup, Integration and Reflection - Florence

Rating: 5/57 users

This course has been created for educators who want to learn more about Project Based Learning (PBL) and how they can integrate this topic into their lessons and school curriculum using the latest techniques and classroom tools.

In this engaging and hands-on course, participants will gain an understanding of what Project Based Learning is, which tools are best for integrating PBL in to your lessons, how to monitor and assess students using PBL and reflect on how educators can integrate PBL into their own teaching practices.

By the end of this course, students will have gained greater insight into PBL projects for the classroom and how to integrate PBL into their lessons. They will become more confident in their own teaching and assessments and will take away ideas on how to integrate PBL into their classroom and school curriculum.
In addition, course participants will walk away with a working PBL model and provided with all the necessary components needed to carry out their project at their own school. They will also learn more about the PBL process and become more confident with initiating and starting other projects within their own school, local community, or other teachers within the EU.

All our courses in Florence include: 2 City Guided Tours of Florence and a 1 day Tuscan Excursion to be chosen among options.

The course was excellent in general. The quality of the materials and the overall program suited my needs perfectly and I am very satisfied with the contents and teaching staff. Communication with Europass was also very good and professional. If your really want to know more about PBL this is the perfect choice.

I just finish the PBL course with Sheila Corwin teacher. Teacher was great. Gave us different tips and resources of PBL. The group was wonderful: we all share experiences and Sheila streamlined the course so that the pair changed. I do recommended the course and the teacher.

I just finished this course (25/3 - 30-/3 and not the above dates) and I really liked the course. Very well structured, welcoming staff and good leisure activities. The course teacher, Sheila Corwin, was just great. She gave us lots of tips and great resources, so do ask to be in her class. ;-) I do recommend the course and the course provider.

The course was really great- I came back with a lot of resources, the trainer is still in touch with us to support us in introducing the methodology in our school. I knew about this method and was a little bit skeptical whether I will learn more. But it turned out I had in some instances many wrong views on the project. Still the trainer wanted us to adapt it according to our educational context. Really great course. I would not however recommend the Europass company as it is rather a machine than a school celebrating new methodology and supporting teachers. Formally, they are OK. But nothing apart from that. My experience with other schools was much better- they didn't charge me anything for additional trips, we spent the amount that we were exactly given by the National Agency, they are still in touch with us, interested in our progress, really wanting to help us. Europass is simply an organisation and if you want to participate in their courses (which are great!) don't expect them to help you in other instances.

In this course we gained knowledge about inquiry based learning, problem based learning and project based learning and differences about each of them. The course was very well structured and well organized. The teachers of the course were very professional and friendly. The participants were actively involved in every part of the course.

The course was correct. Among other aspects we worked on key competences and transversal skills, how to use some platforms for group management, inquiry based, problem based and task based learning and finally how to prepare and how to assess a project.
