Out of the Gate explores and examines the use of PBL by teacher education program (TEP) faculty to prepare preservice teachers to teach PBL “out of the gate,” so they enter K-12 public school districts ready to engage all students, including those furthest from opportunity, in meaningful deeper learning. This project is generously funded by ECMC Foundation (ECMCF) and led by the Buck Institute for Education (BIE). The goal of this project is to build the capacity of TEP faculty to teach and support preservice teachers to use PBL as an instructional method for all students, including those who are furthest from opportunity.
