Attendees will learn how to facilitate student learning through authentic real-world problem-solving that aligns with standardized requirements in school. Participants develop a strong understanding of the problem-based learning (PBL) model, and how to partner with industry leaders in their community so they can bring authentic learning experiences to their classrooms and schools. Through the PBL model, participants will build positive entrepreneurial identities and foster a growth mindset in their students, teaching them the importance of risk-taking, resilience, collaboration and stewardship.
