Project Based Learning

Project Based Learning in the German classroom

The Goethe-Institut is offering three days of advanced training for German teachers:
Project Based Learning in the German Classroom October 28-30, 2016


Project Based Learning promotes creativity, critical thinking, self-direction, and teamwork to create solutions to real world issues or problems.
It also offers the opportunity to integrate different subjects. Through PBL, students will become more engaged with the subject content.

The advanced training will focus on

  • What is Project Based Learning (PBL) and how can it be integrated into the German classroom?
  • How different disciplines can work together
  • How to integrate technology, i.e. the flipped classroom
  • Various teaching methods
  • Developing a project
Presenter: Angelika Becker
