Project-Based Learning Teacher Certificate 

This course consists of content from my "PBL 1.0" and "Assessment 2.0" workshops, and focuses on the creation of one high quality project- walking you through each of the phases of project-based learning so you have a process you can follow each and every time with your students. This course aligns with Dr. Pieratt's award winning book "Keep it Real with PBL", and now includes an entire module on virtual learning, as well!

I created this online course because I understand the life of a busy teacher, real challenges that teachers face, and how adults learn best. And I want to make it easier for any teacher at any grade level to implement project-based learning or PBL-lite.

"I purchased this course yesterday and ended up completing it last night -- Had a night to myself and was on a role --- The way Jenny broke it up made it so easy to just keep moving forward. It was so helpful! I'm so glad I did this! "

Jana Scott
Elementary Teacher

"The PBL Certificate was a great course! I intend to continually refer back to the lesson modules as I create, modify and improve my own classroom PBL projects. Very worthwhile investment for such a useful resource and PD. "

Asencion Reyes
Seconday Teacher

"Jenny’s passion for developing professional learning opportunities that not only push your thinking and growth, but also empowering and inspiring, are contagious. I am a big advocate on starting with the “learner”, and moving backwards from there, and Jenny has shown a commitment to make that a focus in the experiences she is creating for those that she serves."

George Couros
Author Innovator’s Mindset

"I participated in the PBL Certificate e-course and fell in love! Not only does it make PBL accessible and clear, it takes you step by step through the process of creating a PBL project. Furthermore, it offers many resources that are online and from Jenny Pieratt herself. What really sold me was her involvement in the e-course! It is not just a curriculum that you skip through, she is attentive to comments or concerns and answers any questions you may have! The course feels like taking a one-on-one class with her. I feel much more equipped and prepared to tackle PBL in my classroom!"

Daisy Calderón
4th grade teacher, CA

"Jenny's PBL course is phenomenal! As an exceptional children's teacher, I truly loved that she addressed multiple approaches that encompass the whole child and not just the average learner. I'm a true believer in the growth mindset PBL promotes in schools and this program is everything you need to get the ball rolling! The opportunities for success are endless and these lessons break down each phase of learning with a direct and meaningful purpose."

Holly Navo
Exceptional Children Teacher, NC

"I am Assistant Professor of Education at a university, and I teach a course about PBL. Jenny’s PBL Certification training was a great way for me to stay up to date on the topic of PBL so that I can teach pre-service teachers about this approach. The format and modules were user-friendly and provided relevant information and also many examples!"

Brittany Straub
University Professor, Education
