Services For Teachers

PBL World

PBL World is the pre-eminent project based learning conference in the world. It is held every year in mid-June in Napa, California. It offers our signature 3-day introductory workshop, PBL 101, as well as advanced practice workshops and two-day academies on leadership and instructional coaching. Attendees have the opportunity to learn from a diverse group of world leaders in education during the daily opening keynote addresses. To further support dynamic 21st century teaching and learning, attend the free Tech Boot Camps to learn tips and tools for meaningful technology integration. To learn more, visit

PBL 101 Workshops

PBL 101 is BIE’s foundational three-day (consecutive, 7.0 hours per day, including lunch) onsite workshop. It provides participants with the skills and knowledge needed to design, assess and manage a rigorous, relevant, and standards-based project. The workshop models the project process. Facilitated by one of BIE's expert National Faculty, the workshop is a balanced blend of direct instruction, video analysis, hands-on work, resource sharing, and peer collaboration and feedback. Participants are actively engaged in project design, with the expectation that every teacher or teaching team will generate a project plan that receives formative feedback from both participants and BIE National Faculty.

Note: BIE does not offer stand alone (open registration) workshops in the U.S. or abroad. The easiest way for an individual teacher to experience a PBL 101 workshop is to attend PBL World. To learn more, visit
