Teachers as Learners. Learners and Leaders.
The Project Based Learning (PBL) Networks are open to all K-16 teachers and leaders and are divided into two regions for convenience of travel and attendance. Both networks are available to any teacher, leader or PBL educator in the state of Indiana. Each region has its own planning team with oversight and coordination provided by CELL. Other collaborative partners for planning and facilitating include: Indiana University – Purdue University Indianapolis, MSD of Wayne Township, EcO15, Talent Initiative, Indiana University—Purdue University Columbus, the Region 8 Service Center, MSD Decatur Township Schools and Lakeland Schools.
The PBL Networks typically provide two to three network meetings throughout the academic year. Sites for the meetings rotate between various locations to facilitate all participants’ access at the closest location. Meetings include access to resources, supportive professional development opportunities, and lunch at no cost to the participants. Network meetings are facilitated by current in-classroom and school practitioners.
To participate in a network meeting or associated activities contact Lynn Lupold at firstname.lastname@example.org or to receive emails concerning upcoming events, subscribe by emailing email@example.com.
