Problem-Based Learning: Authentic Tasks to Engage Students

Presenter: Patrick Higgins
Description: What would it mean to design a curriculum that is truly engaging? In this workshop, we will explore the power of two approaches to curriculum. In narrative curriculum, students follow a story-line that unfolds over the course of a unit, building interest as the story unfolds. And in problem-driven learning, students identify and solve compelling problems that become more complex and intriguing over time.
