Project -Based Learning (PBL) is a key teaching approach in learning organisations around the world. It taps into student (and staff) passions by doing work that matters. PBL develops competencies in, not just knowledge, but also what to do with what you know.

Why is this important? Schools are seeing an epidemic of student disengagement – Project – Based Learning offers a highly engaging way to learn. It also helps students develop the kind of collaborative, critical thinking and self-direction skills demanded by employers.

What is it? The program provides everything you need to get started with PBL. Engaged Learning has worked closely with PBL experts to bring you tried-and-tested tools and processes to fire your imagination and structure your planning.
