Welcome to the Project Based Learning module! As you complete this ten-hour micro-credential, you will be invited to learn about project based learning and the exciting ways it can benefit your students’ learning and engagement. You will have the opportunity to plan a project with a global focus!
As you undertake this module, you will be guided through a series of experiences. These experiences will introduce you to project based learning, provide you with a set of resources that will supplement your thinking on project based learning, and support you as you undertake planning a project to use with the students in your classroom.
After you submit your project plan and lesson guide, you will receive feedback from educators at Michigan State University’s College of Education. You will then receive your badge in Global Education and PBL!
