News about PBL Math Teaching Summit 2017

Resized PBL for Website

The PBL Summit will be taking a hiatus in 2017 as location, timing and organization has become problematic this year. Please return to this website for information on the new location, dates and participant information for the new and improved PBL Summit in 2018.

Questions? Feel free to contact me at

Please click here for other summer opportunities to learn about Problem-Based Learning under the guidance of Carmel Schettino, Ph.D. [coming soon]

The format of the three-day summit will be split between Special Interest Group Discussions, PBL “Jam” Sessions and Key Note Addresses.  Teachers of varying experience with PBL will be participants and speakers and there will be lots of other interesting information and resource sharing.

Past Summits have included a full day (Tuesday, July 19) for Beginners to PBL – special workshops and introductory talks just for teachers who may be with colleagues who are trying to share their experiences at their schools and would like a little more background information.  Again, this first day is only for Novice PBL Math Teachers, there will be no other scheduled workshops for other participants.

Before the conference, consider what other ideas you might have to share or different thoughts you’d like to ponder related to PBL and please contact me while I am in the planning stages this year.

For planning purposes and in the interest of connecting with people with similar backgrounds, I will link here to the definition of PBL that will be presumed at the summit (since there are many modifications of PBL that are in use at different schools).  Also note that the acronym PBL is meant to represent Problem-Based Learning in this context and not Project-Based Learning).

See the summit website at for information on the 2016 and 2015 past PBL Teaching Summits.

  1. Hello Carmel,

    I am very interested in this summit. Two of my colleagues came to Exeter last summer and we are excited about implementing more PBL into our curriculum. I would love to learn from y’all about how to do this in my math department. We are a private school 6-12.
    Have you filled up already?
