- Project-Based Learning: one of the high impact pedagogies for active, applied, experiential
learning that Chancellor Zimpher encourages all SUNY campuses to embrace & implement.
Since 1970, project-based learning has been the core of WPI's undergraduate curriculum, know as the WPI Plan. Under the Plan, students work closely with faculty and each other to develop solutions to real-world problems in their communities, and in communities around the globe. Participating in team and individual research settings, students tackle authentic, open-ended projects under faculty guidance. In the process, they master critical thinking, sharpen research skills, fine-tune written and oral communication skills, and connect the curriculum to local and global issues. Experts from Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) shared insights and lessons about Project Based Learning on Friday, Sept. 4th, 2015
