Project Based Learning

Here are the slides from this week’s CEDP workshop on Project Based Learning.

Project based learning is one way to move away from a passive classroom to an active classroom. Remember that the Kanevsky’s 5Cs can help you create a situation of learning instead of boredom …

  1. Control – allow students the power to act on their own decisions
  2. Choice – let students have some autonomy in what, how and when they learn
  3. Challenge – each student should have an equal opportunity to learn at an appropriate pace and level
  4. Complexity – move learning into unknown territory where students encounter novel, relevant and authentic experiences
  5. Caring – show your students that you care about their learning

Bringing Learning to Life through Project Based Learning 2013 from Nancy Nelson


About N. Nelson

A college professor with more than 30 years of teaching experience, I am constantly exploring how the current educational paradigm can be adapted to better meet the needs of today’s learners, while still reaching the mandate placed on us by the community and employers to prepare these students for life and careers beyond the college. I enjoy sharing my teaching experiences and expertise through Professional Development Workshops on topics such as Project-Based Learning, Flipping your Classroom, Impacting Student Success, Engaging Large Classes, and Stretching your Teaching Comfort Zone. I am also willing to share my experiences and expertise on the processes required to meet the updated CEAB engineering accreditation requirements.

    Just what I was looking for! Thanks for the great workshop! I just wish I had more time to get more personalized advice on project ideas for my course (but there might not be enough hours in the day).
