The Institute on 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 those learnings 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, liberal arts, STEM, community colleges, and research universities.
