Project Based Instruction (Graduate)

There has been considerable emphasis in current reform documents concerning inquiry based activities. A number of strategies have arisen to address inquiry including case based instruction (Williams, 1992), problem based learning (Hmelo, 1998) and project based learning (Blumenfeld et al., 1991). This course will first address the differences between these approaches to inquiry, some historical roots to project-based instruction and finally will attempt to explore the basic ideas and theoretical perspectives underlying project-based science instruction.
