EDIM 502: Project-Based Learning
Course Designer: Jennifer Dorman
Course Designer Overview:
Project-Based Learning is a dynamic hands-on approach to learning that takes content knowledge and skills out of the isolated classroom and employs it to solve authentic problems in real world settings. Students work in collaborative teams that can include global partners. The driving question that is at the core of a project based learning experience challenges students to think creatively and utilize the knowledge, skills, and habits of professionals in that discipline. So, students find themselves doing the work of scientists, mathematicians, historians, and etc. to solve real world problems and create products that have a wide audience and enduring value beyond the classroom.
