Institute on Project-Based Learning - WPI

Advance Project-Based Learning on Your Campus

Long a staple of STEM-based education, project-based learning is becoming a standard model across disciplines. Collaborative project activity, whether in or out of the classroom, gives students the tools to deepen their knowledge and apply their classroom learning to real-world issues.
Evidence-backed data shows the life-long benefits of this experiential, hands-on learning. Students involved in dynamic project activity gain lasting personal growth and enrichment, greater career satisfaction and engagement, and stronger alumni attachments.

Project work can literally be life changing.

2015 Research on Teaching and Learning Summit | Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning - CETL

Friday, February 20, 2015 - 8:00am to Saturday, February 21, 2015 - 3:00pm
Formerly known as The Georgia Conference on College & University Teaching, the Research on Teaching and Learning Summit has been renamed to underscore our commitment to the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, with an emphasis on research and evidence. Since 1993, thousands of educators from all 34 University System of Georgia colleges and universities, as well as many other schools in the country, and even educators from outside the US and Canada, have participated in this interdisciplinary conference. The renaming also reflects the growth of the conference, transcending state and national boundaries.
Now in its third decade, the Summit is designed to provide college and university faculty the opportunity to discuss and share experiences and innovative teaching techniques. It offers concurrent sessions on cutting-edge issues in pedagogy and higher education in a relaxed, congenial atmosphere. There are also opportunities for participants to network with fellow educators.
Participants report that they have learned many new ideas they were able to bring back to campus, and that they have been energized by interacting with a collegial community of educators invested in excellent teaching.
