For All K-12 Educators

Professional DevelopmentĀ Online Workshops

This was the best Project Based Learning workshop I've had in 20 years!

- Secondary Teacher DeSoto ISD


Any educator interested in Project Based Learning (PBL) will gain valuable knowledge and skills on this 10-day virtual workshop. Educators will develop and present a PBL project with a COVID-19 focus that can be facilitated in the classroom or virtually. The workshop also provides educators the opportunity to:

  • Collaborate with other educators
  • Experience integrating a variety of content, such as TEKS with English Language Proficiency Standards (ELPS), or Common Core State Standards (CCSS) with English Language Development (ELD)
  • Develop a holistic approach to your curriculum that applies listening, speaking, reading, and writing
  • View real world issues that academics and corporations encounter, and experience the methods used when addressing problems
  • Incorporate basic assessment and feedback
  • Use Zoom platform to incorporate into your online teaching
  • Use a variety of technology to develop a real product
  • Learn about our educator motto of "Student led, teacher facilitated"

Participants will earn 20 Continuing Professional Education (CPE) hours.

The Tapia Center is certified by the Texas Education Agency under CPE #101-513.
