PBL_Reflection_Tool_ImageEnsuring Equity in Problem Based Learning: Reflection Tool

As problem and project-based learning (PBL) gains popularity in STEM classrooms, and as the disparity of women and students of color in many STEM disciplines remains the same, specific strategies can be applied to PBL to improve equity and access. NAPE’s Ensuring Equity in Project-Based Learning Toolkit (available April 2017) describes how an equitable PBL approach can positively affect marginalized groups, and provides strategies that educators can use to improve their PBL practices to make learning more equitable. This reflection tool—from the toolkit—supports evaluation and reflection of current practices. With more equitable PBLs, we can increase the diversity of students interested in and pursuing STEM careers.
