Authentic, Engaging Project Based Learning
At its core Epic Project Based Learning (PBL) is about making learning authentic. PBL adds relevancy and real world challenges to the work students accomplish, and in the process makes learning more engaging and memorable.
Epic PBL provides a diverse range of workshops, courses, videos, blogposts, and resources on Project Based Learning, tailored for educators who aspire to empower their students further.
Whether you're just getting your feet wet with PBL or aspiring to train your entire district in Project Based Learning, Epic PBL has the pathway for you.

Project Based Learning Workshops and Consulting.
Trevor Muir's Epic Project Based Learning workshops were developed after years of working in a New Tech project based learning school, as well as his experience as a Buck Institute National Faculty member. Through this engaging and learning-intensive program, Trevor teaches any educator from any grade level how to implement project based learning in their school and classroom.
1 Day Workshop
The goal of the 1 Day workshop is for teachers to leave feeling inspired, empowered, and equipped to plan and execute projects in their own classrooms. Along with the understanding of why PBL has a place in their classrooms, participants will begin planning their own projects based on standards from their specific grade level and content areas.
2 Day Workshop
Building upon the 1 Day, educators will learn about project management and assessment, as well as fully plan a project based learning project. Using the provided tools and resources, participants will collaborate with their peers as well as Trevor to design a complete PBL project. The goal of the 2 Day is for teachers to leave with a fully planned, standards-based project ready for students, as well as confidence to plan further projects outside of the workshop setting..
Coaching & Consulting
Once teachers have a firm grasp on planning, launching, and managing project based learning projects, consulting provides sustained support to deepen PBL practice in the classroom. Trevor meets one-on-one or with small groups of teachers to ensure their success. Consulting is based on the specific needs of teachers, but often includes brainstorming project ideas, creating authentic connections to content standards, & designing authentic assessments.

PBL Expert, Trevor Muir
Trevor is a teacher, author, and speaker. He is the author of the Project Based Learning books The Epic Classroom and The Collaborative Classroom. From leading PBL in middle school, high school, and college classrooms, Trevor has learned that one of the greatest motivators for strong student work and deeper learning is giving that learning purpose. When students know that their work is making a difference, engagement increases and lives transform. He also has learned that the same applies for the teacher, and leading Project Based Learning makes the work of the educator more purposeful as well.
