In-Person Workshop
Inquiry as an approach to teaching and learning has long been regarded as a powerful way not only to engage students in their learning, but to challenge them to think more deeply and apply skills and understandings to new contexts. Many of us like the idea of an inquiry approach but feel less confident with how to use it effectively in the classroom. This workshop is designed to help build educators’ prebuild a practical repertoire of strategies and approaches to lesson and unit design to foster inquiry.
Throughout the day, we will explore the following questions:
  • Why use an inquiry based approach?
  • How can we adopt an inquiry ‘stance’ in our teaching across the day and across the curriculum?
  • What is the role of the teacher in the inquiry classroom? Where does ‘explicit teaching’ fit into the picture? What does inquiry learning ‘look like’ in the classroom?
  • How is the inquiry classroom organised? How do we curate the space?
  • What does an inquiry-based lesson entail?
  • How do we collaboratively plan/design extended journeys (‘units) for inquiry learning?
  • What strategies can we add to our repertoire to strengthen our inquiry based teaching?
  • Come along and enjoy inquiring into inquiry!
