Increasing adoption of project-based learning (PBL) in schools worldwide challenges teachers to rethink their role as they shift from traditional instruction to student-centered learning. That's equally true for face-to-face and remote learning. Seven project-based teaching practices—build the culture, design and plan, align to standards, manage activities, scaffold student learning, assess student learning, and engage and coach—demystify the teacher’s role in high-quality PBL and lead to deeper student learning. This session will use video case studies and resources based on research and field study to help participants build their capacity as project-based teachers. School leaders and instructional coaches will gain new insights for supporting teachers’ professional growth. Examples of PBL for meaningful remote learning will be highlighted, with strategies for amplifying student voice and authenticity with the use of digital tools.
