Who should attend?
Any educator wanting to learn how to bring authentic and transformative project based learning into their school and classroom.
What is EPIC Project Based Learning (PBL)?
EPIC PBL is when students engage in learning that is authentic and meaningful. Students in a PBL environment solve problems and challenges that matter to them, and as a result are deeply engaged in the learning process. This means deeper learning of the content, as well as acquiring and developing critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and other success skills that come from doing authentic work.
EPIC Project Based Learning will help students:
Make connections between the content and their community and world
Prepare for college and career
Develop highly desired 21st century skills
Discover a deep and lasting love of learning
