Ensuring Equity in Problem Based Learning


Ensuring Equity in Problem-Based Learning is designed to assist educators in creating, evaluating, and administering equitable and effective STEM projects and problem based learning (PBL) lessons. NAPE’s PBL for Equity Rubric centers the PBL process through an equity lens that centers the student through team environments and authentic learning contexts. Participants will reflect on how educator practices in PBL impact students with marginalized identities and their interest and engagement in pursuing STEM careers.

Examples of Impact

NAPE's workshops highlight the need to bring our most vulnerable and talented students to the forefront of our practice. I appreciate the space to strive to offer the most out of science education in some of the most challenging conditions.

NAPE’s professional development solutions are designed to assist teams of educators to address specific needs related to: equitable learning environments, student academic success and ultimately, readiness to pursue high-wage, high-skill, high-demand careers.
