At PBLWorks (the brand name of the Buck Institute for Education), we believe that all students – no matter where they live or what their background – should have access to quality project-based learning (PBL) to deepen their learning and achieve success in college, career, and life. Our focus is to build the capacity of teachers to design and facilitate quality PBL and to build the capacity of school and system leaders to create the conditions for teachers to implement great projects with all students.

What We Offer

Teacher Workshops: Launch PBL at your school or district with on-site services from PBLWorks that bring high-quality PBL workshops to your teachers and staff. Service options include PBL 101, Project Slice, and Sustained Support Visits.

District Partnerships: Develop a system-wide program for PBL in your school or district with on-site services for leaders, teachers, and staff. Each year, PBLWorks partners with a select number of schools and districts to support system-wide implementation of high-quality PBL. Through a one-year or multi-year partnership, we work with you as a partner to develop the capacity, conditions, and coherence for successful PBL.
