Engineering Based Learning Implementation Guide
Designed by teachers, for teachers.
Why Engineering Based Learning ?
Just as an educator provides students with direction at the start of a lesson or activity, this publication is a tool for implementing engineering based learning (EBL) in the classroom. EBL is a cross-curricular framework that can be used throughout all academic levels and disciplines. EBL is a powerful way to connect with 21st century learners in an engaging and exciting manner. The format of this website guides the reader through the engineering design process to implement an EBL experience.
Who we are...
This site was created by classroom teachers. Each of the contributors to this website were also participants in the CAPSULE summer professional development program at Northeastern University. CAPSULE is a two-week Engineering Project-Based professional development experience for high school science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) teachers funded by the National Science Foundation.
Teachers realized, by participation in the program, the added value to the classroom of embedding EBL strategies into their curricula. There exists a limited amount of information on best practices supported by EBL, teachers decided to produce an implementation guide that could be used by the novice teacher up to teachers that have fully-developed STEM curriculum. If you are looking for ways to implement EBL into your classroom please visit our IMPLEMENTATION or RESOURCES pages.
