Thousands of years ago, Galileo reportedly asserted, "You cannot teach a man anything. You can only help him discover it within himself." With a focus on project-based learning, it motivates students to explore student success topics and to discover how they can apply these skills to their college experience.
Project College Success shows that project-based learning actively engages and inspires students. Each `project' introduces an authentic topic relevant to student success and then poses a question which directs student exploration. Through this guided inquiry, students work individually or in groups to discover and explore answers. Students can discuss, analyze, and evaluate various aspects of a current project topic. This approach sparks classroom dynamics, immerses students in diverse discussions, and prepares them for the workplace by promoting engagement and accelerated success through a learner-centered focus to achieve learning outcomes.

"What I am really excited about is the flexibility that we have with project based learning. We can not only customize our assignments, but also supplement our teaching styles. These projects are not only engaging the students at a high level, but they are providing many teachable moments (from the students) for me!"
