Project-Based Learning and Pedagogy in Teacher Preparation: Staking out the Theoretical Mid-Ground
Roessingh, Hetty; Chambers, Wendy
International Journal of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, v23 n1 p60-71 2011
In this article, we advance a model of project-based learning (PJBL) offering eight guiding principles to support a pragmatic and principled approach to teacher preparation at the undergraduate and graduate levels. We provide a template for structuring PJBL, and we include illustrative exemplars that demonstrate that the ideological mid-ground can offer a balance of content knowledge and facilitate the dispositions we value in the new generation of teacher practitioners. (Contains 4 figures.)
