Session 206

Title: Integrated Project-Based Learning (IPL) at Canobolas

Presenter: Gemma Carter –  The Canobolas Rural Technology High School

Type: Showcase

Duration: 60 mins

Overview: At The Canobolas Rural Technology High School (TCRTHS) the Year 7 curriculum for 2017 was delivered using an Integrated Project-Based Learning (PBL) Approach, known in our school as IPL. Low student engagement was identified as a concern and a cross-curricular PBL model was adopted, following the success of other project based subjects such as Technology, Art and PD/H/PE. Following small and then large scale trials of project based learning in our STEM programs, a design thinking process was applied to develop a cross-KLA PBL curriculum that includes English, Maths, Science, History, Geography, Personal Development and Health and Languages Other Than English (LOTE). Participants will be guided through the unpacking of the Canobolas IPL model and curriculum set up, along with successes and challenges identified and advice given to those looking to develop their own PBL curriculum.
