Project-Based Learning and Executive Function

Presented by: Jessica Chiusolo, M.Ed. & Laurel Black, Ed. M.

Date/time: February 13, 2024, 3:30-5:30 P.M. EST

Project-based learning (PBL) is a powerful and popular teaching approach in which students work on real-world projects to learn academic content; however, while PBL looks great on paper, it can be quite challenging for many students, especially students with learning and attention challenges. 

Incorporating executive function strategies, as well as opportunities for reflection, can transform PBL, helping students to not only complete projects more successfully, but also to gain an understanding of the strategies they want to use. 

This workshop will explore the connection between executive function and project-based learning. Through hands-on activities and real life examples, attendees will learn to identify and address the EF strategies needed for success in PBL and discuss ways to adapt PBL activities and projects to meet the needs of students with different EF strengths and challenges.
