Our book, The Tapas Approach to Project Based Learning, presents an innovative perspective on PBL by advocating a 'small bites' methodology. This approach emphasizes the benefits of breaking down complex educational concepts and processes into manageable, digestible segments, much like enjoying a variety of tapas in a meal. Physically, this method reduces the overwhelming nature of large projects, making learning more accessible and less daunting for both students and teachers alike. Emotionally, it fosters a sense of accomplishment and motivation, as each 'small bite' achieved boosts confidence and engagement. Mentally, this approach aids in better comprehension and retention of information, as students can focus on understanding each component thoroughly before moving on to the next. The Tapas Approach to Project Based Learning thus offers a holistic strategy that enhances the learning experience by addressing the physical, emotional, and mental aspects of education. 

We are convinced, once you and your students develop a taste for PBL you'll find nothing else is compares.
