How to create a successful learning experience using Project-Based Learning

How to create a successful learning experience using Project-Based Learning

We're going to show you how to build your learning environment using the so-called Project-Based Learning approach.

Hey Readers,

You’ve probably heard of (or even used) Project-Based Learning.. still, we want to share the mini-workshop we’ve had with our community member, Kyle Wagner, who’s been in the field for 12 years.

Kyle brought us into a whole new game of designing a curriculum that certainly gives high value to students.

It unlocks the challenge of transforming students through your course and making them workforce-ready.

So here are the most important points from the workshop:

  • No one has (or very few have) read the manual when learning to play a video game. We get into the game immediately. Why not apply this real-world scenario in your course design?
  • Make your students “experience learning,” not just you teaching them lessons
  • Doing a project is different from Project-Based Learning. As Kyle said, When the project guides the learning, the learning becomes natural and not forced.
  • Start with asking your students the right questions and encourage them to ask open-ended questions
  • Translate those questions into a course design, activities, or modules
  • Define what kind of transformation does your students want after taking your course
  • There are 8 Key Elements in using Project-Based Learning
