Problem Based Learning in the Secondary School Classroom


Problem-based learning is a dynamic classroom approach in which students actively explore real-world problems and challenges to acquire deeper knowledge. Students gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to an engaging, "wicked" problem, or challenge. This workshop is for teachers who are starting to think about problem based learning for their year 9-10 students and will include examples from teachers currently engaged in this style of teaching and learning.

Learning Outcomes

  • Identify a delivery model that can be designed to engage a diverse range of students.
  • Investigate opportunities to develop cross-curricula links.
  • Develop a better understanding of collaborative teaching models which maybe adapted for your school context.

Who is this for

Teachers and leaders wanting to explore the concept in year 9-10 classrooms.
