The Institute on Project-Based Learning, a flagship offering of WPI’s Center for Project-Based Learning, is a 2.5-day intensive workshop where teams of five or more faculty and administrators from colleges and universities of all types work with experts to gain knowledge about project-based learning and make tangible progress to integrate that knowledge into their own curricula. The Institute curriculum is a mix of interactive workshops on project-based learning, consultations with Institute faculty, and collaborative teamwork guided by a dedicated coach.

Participants will come to the Institute with a proposal outlining a specific goal or project they would like to advance and will work with Institute faculty to leave with an enhanced understanding of project-based learning and a tailored action plan to advance work on their own campuses.

The Institute is designed for faculty and administrators from a wide variety of two-year, four-year, public, private, liberal arts, and STEM-focused institutions.
