Project-Based Learning

A number of school districts in South Carolina are incorporating some project-based learning into their curricula as a way to get to the deeper learning needed to better prepare students for college and careers (and to meet the requirements of the Profile of the SC Graduate). Furman is partnering with local school districts to offer three graduate courses that lead to South Carolina's endorsement in Project-based Learning.
