Overview
The Beryl Buck Institute for Education creates, gathers, and shares high-quality project-based learning instructional practices and products and provides services to teachers, schools, and districts. The institute will facilitate the creation and adoption of project-based learning standards that include deeper learning outcomes; in addition, the institute will evaluate its principal development program for alignment to deeper learning and introduce a portfolio defense system for leaders. This grant will test the theory of diffusion that by making elements of deeper learning leadership more observable, the practices and ideas will be more likely to spread.

Grants to this Grantee
for a research-practice partnership to test theories of diffusion and scaled impact  
The Buck Institute for Education builds capacity among teachers, school leaders, and school systems to design, implement, and facilitate project-based learning, an instructional approach in which students gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period of time to investigate an authentic, complex challenge. In partnership with school districts, departments of education, and other organizations, the Buck Institute will scale such high-quality practices. This work will document the school system conditions that enable or constrain their spread, providing new understanding about how innovation travels.
