Project Based Inquiry Learning (PBIL) Course

Any educator in the Griffin‐Spalding School District who is interested in inquiry based learning is invited to enroll in the Project Based Inquiry Learning course from June 1-30, 2016. Educators can work in cohort groups at your school to complete the coursework. We will have a  one day optional face-to-face workshop on Tuesday, June 7, 2016. If you participate in the workshop, coursework will take approximately five hours a week during the month of June. (*if there is a conflict with this date, you will have the option to complete the course entirely online)

This 30 hour facilitated online course will support teachers in using project-­based inquiry learning (PBIL), to enhance conceptual understanding, critical thinking, scientific reasoning, and problem solving. The course will cover several important topics in PBIL, including: standards-­‐based design, formative and summative assessment, and development of science process skills along with science content knowledge. Participants will 1) complete a PBIL first-­‐hand; 2) analyze PBIL curriculum and resources to develop design acumen; and 3) begin designing a PBIL unit for their classroom.

Course registration is available until May 25, 2016 at https://pe.gatech.edu/courses/discovering-project-based-inquiry-learning.  The course is free for Griffin-Spalding School educators. Please contact Sabrina Grossman, course instructor, for the copon code.
