Back to School On Campus Staff Development, PBL Style

A couple of smart principals I know (and luckily get to work with frequently) told me that they're going to use Project Based Learning for campus staff development this year. We started brainstorming a Driving Question for this purpose. What do you think? Would you rather have PBL based Back to School staff development? What could we do to improve our DQ?

Driving Question:

How can you work in a team of 4-5 peers to create a 5-10 minute presentation on an engaging strategy, communication technique, or tool that could be used enhance learning or improve communication in our school?

Norms & Expectations:
  • All team members must speak about what they contributed during the presentation .
  • Teaching techniques or scenarios addressed by the teams should be presented in an engaging way and modeled during the presentation.
  • A digital representation or handout that will help your peers remember the technique/tool/idea, etc. must be shared.
