Michigan IBL Consortium


We are working to build and sustain a regional community of mathematics instructors in Michigan that

  1. is welcoming and supportive of all instructors using, or interested in using, inquiry-based mathematics education;
  2. makes cross-institutional connections between instructors in the state (and nearby areas);
  3. provides a platform for sharing ideas, resources, and events pertaining to inquiry-based mathematics in the region;
  4. organizes in-person IBL events for both new and experienced IBL users;
  5. supports instructors' reflective teaching practice in a safe community of practitioners.


As part of a new NSF grant to support regional IBL communities, we are excited to offer Peer Collaboration Mini-Grants and Travel Mini-grants. See all the details in the RFP.

Upcoming Events

We will host a workshop in the spring or early summer. Stay posted! Join our community to stay in the loop.
