This course is a concise roadmap to support sustained inquiry in Project Based Learning.

With 4 sections, more than 10 videos of content, a downloadable course workbook, and PBL plus a simple Guided Inquiry Design unit planner to embed inquiry and research into your PBL units. You’ll be quickly on your way to designing gold standard PBL units with sustained inquiry.

Dr. Leslie Maniotes is ready to guide your learning!

This course provides a clear road map to designers of PBL units (teachers and their librarian partners or curriculum staff). Learn how to design and guide the middle part of the process where students learn from their inquiry and research. Using GID for PBL your students will come from an informed and educated perspective as they work toward their project end goal. Don’t we want that for all our learners?

For individuals, the course works great as a self-guided course. Work at your own pace as you set your goals, reflect on your practice in the course workbook and apply the ideas in the course to an upcoming unit of study that you are planning. By the end you’ll be inspired to add research to your PBL with no worries!

For schools or districts – This course can be used as flipped content for professional development. Perfect for districts or schools looking to focus their PBL units to include sustained inquiry and research. Let the author of Guided Inquiry Design virtually join your PD sessions as you use the videos and workbook exercises to drive planning, and instructional design of PBL units. The conversations about the course will help teams apply this right to their work and build community around the practice. The course can be used for teams, small groups, departments, school wide PD or even for large district groups.

If you have an interested group, we have a complete PD planner for you. The group rate includes a complete PD plan to go along with the course, so you can use the course as high quality turn key professional development. Email Dr. Leslie Maniotes to get started!
