Project Based Learning Webinar Series
Session 2: Developing Driving Questions
Sunday, April 14, 6pm ET / 3pm PT
With Dr. Kathy Schwartz, RJE

The URJ and the ARJE are excited to offer three learning opportunities for teachers who facilitate Project Based Learning models. Through three sessions, we hope to network teachers and provide them with a sense of strength, meaning, and purpose in their PBL work. By gathering a group and learning with experts from around the country, we will be able to compare how PBL operates in different communities and be inspired by one another. Join us as we extract best principles of PBL and consider how they might impact the values in your own community. Please note that sessions are stand-alone, enabling you to attend whenever you can. You will need to register individually for each session. Sessions are intended for those who have some teaching experience in Project Based Learning or are seriously considering a PBL model in their congregation.

Dr. Kathy Schwartz, RJE is the Director of Lifelong Learning at Congregation Har HaShem in Boulder, Colorado, a clinical faculty mentor in HUC-JIR’s Executive MA in Jewish Education program, and the incoming President of the Association of Reform Jewish Educators.
