Challenge Based Learning

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Join us as we explore how innovative teachers employed action research and challenge-based learning methodologies in their classrooms over a span of 12 months. These projects yielded highly significant results, behavioral and data driven, both from students and teachers. These teachers are part of an online masters degree focusing on emergent media and immersive learning environments for learners of all ages. A partial requirement of this degree is to conduct an action research project as well as a challenge based-learning initiative. 

Challenge Based Learning requires the teacher to be part of the learning process and work along side the students to produce possible solutions. Solutions will often reflect individual interests and desires, which motivate students to take ownership of their learning. These solutions are shared with a global audience, which brings attention to communication, collaboration, critical thinking and evaluation, skills for the 21st century.
