Inquiry Based Learning

Inquiry Based Learning

This is well beyond independent learning.

This is well beyond handing a student a worksheet and directing him/her to use his or her notes to answer the questions. After all, the answers are there.

This is well beyond following the course syllabus.

It’s called “Inquiry Based Learning” a process by which student interest guides what they will attempt to the learn - just in a nonconventional way.

Here is the basic framework.

Student Isabella Shenah created this project using the IBL method.
