PBL World is a conference held annually at the New Technology High School in Napa, CA. The conference brings together over 500 teachers and administrators for a week of learning about and celebrating Project Based Learning. Our next PBL World Conference is on June 23-27, 2014. Attendees can participate in BIE's PBL 101 workshop or PBL Coaching Academy. Participants can also sign up for advanced all-day sessions, one-day Coaching Intensives, or a PBL Leadership Academy. Along with our workshops, participants can take advantage of rich keynote presentations and opportunities to connect with like-minded educators. Registration options and pricing will be available in November 2013, with official registration beginning February 1, 2014. Please note that this event has sold out for the past two years, so please plan ahead.
