Project-Based Learning to Enhance Key Competences


Are you a teacher interested in shifting your teaching to a more engaging and effective learning process? Besides introducing and implementing Augmented Reality in the classroom, teachers need to be aware of the context and environment surrounding their teaching practice, its applications and translations into the real world. The Project-Based Learning to Enhance Key Competences course will help teachers implement a project-based learning (PBL) approach in their classroom so as to develop key competences for lifelong learning, such as entrepreneurship, digital competence, citizenship, and others.

The course will start with a reflection process about the period of remote teaching during the COVID-19 pandemic, so as to understand how PBL can be an effective method in online, blended, and face-to-face settings and should be seen as mechanism to take lessons learnt from this period into the new school year.

Participants will also investigate the different components of a PBL approach, such as student collaboration or student agency, and how they can address some of the key competences for lifelong learning. Furthermore, teachers will have the opportunity to experiment with tools and strategies that can help them implement a PBL approach and discuss how best to assess PBL.

The course starts Monday 28 September 2020 and runs for 5.5 weeks with a total number of 4 modules. More information regarding course content, registration procedure, and deadlines on the SchoolEducationGateway website.
