EDUC 654: Designing and Implementing a STEM Project-Based Learning Unit (Graduate)

Participants will design and implement a project-based learning unit in a STEM-related field to engage their elementary and secondary students in deeper learning. We explore the nuts and bolts of designing an effective PBL unit, while ensuring the Indiana Standards are the cornerstones to the unit. We investigate research-based practices of implementing high quality PBL. Participants will be introduced to the theory and practice of project-based learning (PBL).

Prerequisite: None

Note: The four EDUC courses offered by University of Indianapolis through STEM Teach V (EDUC 654, EDUC 655, EDUC 656, & EDUC 653) can be used to complete a Master’s in Curriculum & Instruction for dual credit credentialing once 18 graduate credits are completed in a specific content area.

These courses (EDUC 654, EDUC 655, EDUC 656, & EDUC 653) can also be used to complete a STEM graduate certificate.
