How to Begin Exploring the Foundations of Inquiry-Based Learning

Inquiry is the very foundation of what learning is all about. It begins with inspiring curiosity, and culminates in the creation and communication of deep learning.

Perhaps you are a teacher who is just beginning to immerse yourself in inquiry-based learning practices, but want to know more. What is it exactly? Why is it such a powerful method of instruction? How do we teach it to our learners? How can we measure its effectiveness in our teaching?

Here at Wabisabi Learning, we love inquiry-based learning. So to help you understand and build the skills to truly harness the power of inquiry, we developed a workshop that answers all the above questions and many more. We call it Foundations of Inquiry-Based Learning.
