The Institute on Project-Based Learning, a flagship offering of Worcester Polytechnic Institute’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 learning into their own curricula. The institute curriculum is a mix of interactive workshops on project-based learning, consultations with institute faculty, and collaborative teamwork. Institutions interested in participating in the 2018 Institute on Project-Based Learning are required to complete an application form by no later than February 13, 2018. Notifications regarding acceptance will be sent to teams by no later than March 16, 2018.

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 variety of public and private, 2-year and 4-year, liberal arts and technical institutions.
