Project Based Learning (PBL) is an instructional strategy in which students gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to a complex question, problem, or challenge. The Fairfield County Educational Service Center’s PBL Matters program works in conjunction with PBLWorks to provide comprehensive, high-quality PBL learning opportunities. PBL Matters was established in 2019 to provide fully-tiered support for teachers and organizations as they progress through the PBL process.
The PBL Matters Institute, hosted by the Fairfield County ESC and PBLWorks, is the Midwest's premier conference for Project Based Learning. Each year, we bring together dedicated K-12 teachers, instructional coaches, and school and district leaders who want to connect with each other and learn more about PBL. It's not like other conferences that have a variety of short sessions by many different presenters—it's an institute, where participants go through a continuous multiday experience. We believe PBL transforms students - and the PBL Matters Institute transforms educators!
