Order this on-demand webinar and learn how to increase the depth of student learning in many curricular areas by moving toward student-directed inquiry on academic topics in which students develop their understanding through the completion of in-depth projects. Many student projects are multidisciplinary, providing the chance for students to see the relevancy of their learning through direct application in their projects. If you love seeing students fully engaged in learning, this program will provide practical guidance in making this happen in your classroom.
