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 will 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.

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

The institute is designed for faculty and administrators from a wide variety of institutions, including public, private, and liberal arts institutions; community colleges; and research universities.
