PBL RESIDENCY PARTNERS

“I am so grateful to have been able to take such an interesting course that will have a definite impact in the way I do things. I have already discarded some things in favor of a better way. Thank you for designing such a well-organized process!”

PBL Residency Participant 2015

“Sending a group of teachers to the ACS PBL Residency in August was an investment in the students who attend Duncan Christian School. It’s not often that I witness professional development that is truly transformational and provides an almost immediate and lasting impact, with tangible benefits to students.The ACS PBL Residency has done that. My own elementary-aged son had grown accustomed to jumping through the hoops of the classroom, and PBL has brought life back to his learning. Another student wrote a note to me that said, “It’s cool that I can learn about baseball in school!” The parents of a student with unique needs who had just recently joined our school community said she’s never seen her grade 7 aged son experience so much joy in school. These are all great adverts for PBL, but in truth the PBL journey is certainly not easy nor without many challenges and bumps; however, it’s one worth engaging. Part of the power of our experience in PBL was being able to send a handful of teachers who could collaborate together during the PBL Residency week, and encourage one another as well as the rest of our staff when they returned to DCS. If you’re thinking of sending a couple staff to a PBL Residency, consider sending a group because their experience will be so much richer!”
