KAESA, the Kansas State Department of Education, and the Buck Institute are partnering together to deliver a three day Project-Based Learning seminar titled PBL Kansas.

Designed to support all schools, especially those involved in the KSDE Redesign Process, PBL Kansas will focus on both the theory and practice of Project-Based Learning with specific focus on integrating PBL across grade levels and content areas.

A unique feature of PBL Kansas is the ability for individuals and school teams to participate in scaffolded learning based on past experience with PBL. Enroll in the level of learning that is right for you.
