Project-Based Learning at SCVi

Project-based learning is foundational to our approach to education at SCVi.

What is project-based learning (PBL)?

PBL is an educational approach that emphasizes the use of projects or tasks as the primary means of educating and learning. In PBL, learners engage in a variety of real-world projects that require them to apply what they have learned in a practical, hands-on manner.

In project-based learning, learners take an active role in their own learning, working collaboratively in groups to investigate and solve complex problems. The projects are designed to be relevant to learners’ interests and to connect to their everyday lives. Learners are encouraged to explore and ask questions, and to develop critical thinking, problem-solving, and communication skills.

The goal of project-based learning is to create a more engaging and meaningful learning experience for learners. Our goal at SCVi is to challenge learners to develop a deeper understanding of the subject matter and the ability to apply what they have learned in real-world situations.
