The Buck Institute for Education (BIE) is dedicated to improving 21st Century teaching and learning throughout the world by creating and disseminating products, practices and knowledge for effective Project Based Learning (PBL).
BIE contributes to Project Based Learning through product development, services, research, and online learning.
BIE publishes books and articles to support K-14 teachers in designing and implementing PBL. We create free materials - "FreeBIEs" - such as project planning forms, student handouts, rubrics, and articles for educators to download and use. BIE also created curriculum units for high school Economics and U.S. Government courses, Project Based Economics and Project Based Government.
BIE conducts introductory and advanced PBL workshops, provides instructional coaching, and consults with organizational leaders.
BIE partners on research projects to collect evidence about the effectiveness of PBL and advance knowledge about its use. We provide access to studies and summaries of research on PBL practices and outcomes.
BIE offers online resources including "how-to" videos and example projects, a Do-It-Yourself Tutorial, and a Project Search tool.
