Today was the final day for the first phase of the institute. It was one of the main times where I got to see other participants perspective. The focus of the day was on completing the first phase of a PBL in front of an audience. The audience consists of participants and facilitators who act like your students. Facilitators and participants can offer feedback to improve the problem.

We split into two groups to make the best use of time. Each person presented their potential problem including any prior knowledge of the person and their type of students. Next the presenter gets the audience to complete know/need to know chart. This allowed us the ability to practice questioning to the information that we want students to know. We also were able to see what other turns the problem could take when presented. The final part of the presentation included creating the task/factors (also known as problem statement).
