INQUIRY BASED LEARNING

Inquiry-based learning approaches allow students to deepen their learning around themes and questions they are interested in and connected to. Inquiry is moving beyond the 'research project' and creating a culture of thinking and curiosity. There are many different pedagogical approaches that will enable educators to co-create this culture with their students. Find detailed descriptions of these and resources to support your learning below.
