PBL 5: Benchmarks FAQ
Does this course ONLY apply to PBL teachers?
- As the title says, this course is part of a larger series focused on PBL. As such, the primary audience is for PBL teachers; however, it does include tips and strategies for collaboration that may be helpful for any classroom.
Should I take all of these courses in order?
- The answer to that question is - it depends. If you are a veteran PBL teacher needing some additional ideas for benchmarks, then no. If, however, you are new to the PBL model, then we would recommend starting at the beginning to move through them all.
What is the best way to take these courses?
- We suggest that you avoid "binge watching" the PBL series. While lots of ground will be covered, you want the material to translate into practice. Our recommendation is to move through them one course each week so that you have time to read and reflect. If you desire a faster completion, we suggest no more than 1 course every other day. That way, you learn and then apply before moving on to the next.
