Student Testimonials:

Having the outlined assignments with the partnered PBL text made this course really manageable and enjoyable. I was nervous going into this course, being relatively new to PBL, and what the management of these assignments and planning out a PBL project would look like. This course definitely met my expectations and goals. I feel much more confident in not only planning out PBL projects, but more importantly, in coaching other educators in the work. As I transition into my new role... I am excited to take what I have learned from this course and partner this practice with digital technology integration support. Thanks so much for putting together such a thorough, transferable course!
