NYAS Webinar: The Benefits of Challenge-based Learning

January 25, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

  • This event has passed.

The Academy’s Global STEM Alliance (GSA) has developed and refined an approach to online challenge-based learning, in which students work collaboratively to design solutions to real-world problems with support from STEM professionals who serve as mentors. Challenge-based learning offers many educational benefits, including increased student engagement, skills development, and content mastery. In this event, GSA students and mentors will share their experiences of challenge-based learning, and educators will consider implications for classroom practice.

During this webinar, you will hear from a panel of students, teachers, and mentors on the following topics:
  • What are the benefits of challenge-based learning?
  • How might challenge-based learning address issues of equity in STEM?
  • What are some best practices in challenge-based learning?
  • How might educators use challenge-based learning in their classrooms?
