Introduction to Problem-Based Learning
January 23-25, 2013 on the University of Delaware main campus in Newark, Delaware
You are invited to participate in a three-day introductory PBL session to be offered at the University of Delaware (UD) on Jan. 23-25, 2013. This workshop series will demonstrate problem-based learning (PBL) and model ways that PBL can be used effectively in all disciplines, in upper and lower division courses, in public schools or colleges, and in all size classes.
We will begin with a problem, and participants will work in teams to experience first-hand what this instructional approach entails. We will then move to the main focus of this program: writing effective problem-based materials. Participants will leave the session with new or revised problems for use in their courses. To learn more about PBL, visit the PBL@UD website.
The cost for the workshop series is $295, substantially lower than our typical fee. We want to encourage wide participation and support educators when finances are tight. Also, there is no cost for UD faculty or teachers from public schools.
If you are interested in participating in this session, please register by January 4, 2012.
Registration cost is $295/ person, which includes the cost of materials and refreshment breaks.
To register, please complete the registration form and submit payments by mail.
