To succeed with project based learning, continuous education of leaders is needed.
To maximize the opportunity for successful implementation and sustainability, as well as continued growth and development, systematic and ongoing training is essential. Ideally the training will include multiple components:
1) Find and partner with a “sister school” that has been doing PBL successfully.
2) Use an outside expert to conduct ongoing training and provide feedback.
3) Be proactive and continue examining current research and articles on the topic.
4) Build a set of internal trainers who can work with other teachers in a coaching or mentoring capacity.
