Core Professional Development Services

BIE provides Core Professional Development Services to hundreds of schools in the U.S. and abroad. This exemplary professional development is anchored in two primary forms of support. The PBL 101 Workshop is BIE’s foundational three-day (consecutive, 7.0 hours per day, including lunch) onsite workshop. Based on BIE's model for Gold Standard PBL, the workshop provides participants with the skills and knowledge needed to design, assess, and manage a rigorous, relevant, and standards-based project. The workshop models the project process. Facilitated by one of BIE's expert National Faculty, the workshop is a balanced blend of direct instruction, video analysis, hands-on work, resource sharing, and peer collaboration and feedback.

Systemic PBL Implementation Services

BIE provides systemic PBL implementation services to more than 25 U.S. school systems in support of more than 10,000 teachers. BIE partners with these systems to ensure the sustainability of Gold Standard PBL as an instructional practice. PBL is most successful when the appropriate culture and structures are in place to support it. Our systemic partnerships vary in size and scope but are always aligned with existing strategic plans and innovation goals. Our proprietary planning model results in a three-year PBL initiative that has as its goal the sustainable implementation of PBL across a system. The plan generates a flexible but structured rollout of professional development. It outlines benchmarks and goals.
