Designing ProjectBased Learning Curricula

whitePaper | May 30, 2022

Project-based learning (PBL) is an inquiry-based approach that aims to engage students in challenging, active, and meaningful experiences connected to the world outside the classroom (Baines et al., 2021a). Project-based learning can improve student performance on traditional measures of academic achievement, build social and emotional learning skills, and engage students in deeper learning. This means focusing on higher-order think-ing and skills that will help students succeed in college, their future careers, and their lives as active members of their communities. The alignment of PBL and deeper learning is supported by a growing body of evidence that PBL has a significant positive impact on student learning and other outcomes of deeper learning (Duke et al., 2021; Deutscher et al., 2021; Krajcik et al., 2021; Saavedra et al., 2021). This paper will provide guidance for those who are designing curricula1 to achieve similar goals through project-based learning.
