“Kath offers us the tools, frameworks, and resources not just to “do inquiry,” but to create the kind of classroom and school culture in which inquiry can flourish.” Ron Ritchhart

Join Kimberly Mitchell and Trevor Mackenzie as they speak with Kath about her work in personal inquiry. In the spirit of their popular ‘fire side’ chats, this conversation is designed not only to launch Kath’s book but to share with educators some insights and strategies for nurturing a more personalised approach to inquiry through which young people can explore their strengths, interests and passions. This free launch will include opportunities for participants to ask questions and learn more about how to enhance their work in inquiry. Please join us by the fire as we launch this exciting new book!

Kath began her professional life as a classroom teacher in Melbourne, Australia. Her fascination in how students' constructed their understandings - and her interest in the way questions and big ideas could drive curriculum soon led to a passion for integrative and inquiry based methodologies.

Critical to Kath's success is her continued involvement in classroom teaching.

They range from intensive partnerships with schools to develop inquiry programs and practices over several years through to one-day workshops for beginning or experienced inquiry teachers. Whether in her home town of Melbourne or on the other side of the world, working with a team or speaking to a packed auditorium Kath's style is refreshingly practical, inclusive and always connected to the real world of teaching.
