Events

In addition to the Onsite Services that we offer to districts and schools, the Buck Institute also offers a series of PBL events throughout the year to deliver professional learning opportunities for individuals and teaching teams. These events include workshops, keynotes, and community building opportunities.

What to Expect

  • Facilitated by one of BIE’s expert National Faculty, our PBL workshops are a blend of direct instruction, video analysis, hands-on work, resource sharing, and peer collaboration and feedback.
  • Each event offers our Gold Standard PBL 101 Workshop, and may include PBL Leadership Workshops, PBL Coaching Workshop, advanced PBL 201 sessions.

Who Should Attend

  • Teachers, school and district leaders, instructional coaches for K-12 schools who are looking to gain the skills and knowledge for successful and sustainable implementation of PBL.
  • Our workshops are designed for educators who are new to PBL and those who are ready to delve deeper into role-specific and advanced workshops.

Why Enroll

  • Teachers consistently rate our professional development services as exceptional.
  • Our workshops are based on BIE’s Gold Standard PBL model and provide participants with the skills and knowledge needed to design, assess, and manage a rigorous, relevant, and standards-based project.
