What is inquiry? We will explore our beliefs and experiences about inquiry and unpack theoretical approaches that relate to agency and inquiry as a pedagogical mindset. Through practical hands-on engagements and scenarios, we will explore approaches to inquiry, identify the key elements that support inquiry and develop a deeper appreciation and understanding of inquiry from the perspectives of diverse learners.

11:00 Break
11:30 – 1:00 Session Two

Elements of inquiry: In this session we learn why concepts play a vital role for driving inquiry. Using concepts, we learn how to frame and work with big ideas to support personal inquiry, differentiation and multiple ways of knowing in the constructivist classroom.

13:00 Lunch
2:00 – 03:30 Session Three

Nurturing curiosity: Curiosity and questioning are fundamental building blocks at the heart of inquiry-based learning. In this session we will learn how to create opportunities that nurture curiosity, learn how to develop effective teacher and student questions and how to use these two elements as a basis to support and develop student inquiries.

Day 2

09:00 – 11:00 Session Four

Creating a culture of inquiry: How do we move beyond inquiry as an activity toward inquiry as a sustained pedagogical approach in our practice? In this session we will look at how we optimize time and space through the classroom environment, structures and schedules. We will learn techniques and strategic approaches to make the most of the different contexts in which we all teach.

11:00 Break
11:30 – 1:00 Session Five

Personalizing learning through inquiry: What is voice and choice and how do we ensure its authenticity? In this session we learn practical approaches to support self-directed learning, through the role of goal setting, feedback, assessment and reflection.

13:00 Lunch
2:00 – 03:30 Session six

Putting it all together – planning for inquiry: Planning and the effective collaboration of teachers can either make or break inquiry opportunities for the learner. In this session you will learn practical approaches and techniques for planning with the written curriculum. We learn how to plan for personalized inquiries that build upon students interests and curiosities.
