EDIM 513: Inquiry-Based Learning
Course Designer: Matthew Cwalina
This course centers around the skills students need for the 21st century. During inquiry, students refine their problem solving, critical thinking and creativity skills and are asked to apply them in a constructivist approach. Participants will be engaged in addressing how students learn, the process of inquiry, the process skills of inquiry and the role technology plays in engaging the 21st century learner.
Course Designer Overview:
Inquiry-based instruction is a powerful way for students to learn through active engagement with their environment. Teachers who engage in this form of instruction orchestrate a learning environment that allows students to develop a deep understanding and enriched knowledge about selected topics. Inquiry should be one of the methodologies that teachers employ in meeting the challenges of today's academic expectations. We live in an era of rapidly expanding knowledge, which highlights the need for students to be lifelong learners. Inquiry skills support a student's ability to question and methodically investigate a wide range of subject matter. This course will explore inquiry as a teaching technique, utilizing technology to support the various stages of the process.
