Lots of information – food for thought. Will definitely use scaffolds. Problem based was a bit of a problem for me at first but I will definitely be using project based learning in the future.

Lots of examples of scaffolds of ‘pieces’ of PBL. Would have liked more examples of full PBL tasks to grasp a better understanding of what they can look like.

Very informative about IPI – very useful to take back so they have a better understanding of the process.
