Inquiry-Based Learning: Why It's Not About Knowledge, by Kelly Goodsir

About this event

In a science experiment, what's more important? The knowledge acquired at the end or the learning muscles -- creativity, curiosity, logic -- exercised on the journey? In today's world of Google and ubiquitous knowledge, it has to be about the latter, the journey -- learning to learn.

Inquiry-based learning meets this need.

A child's self-directed investigation is an active process provoked by questions, problems and scenarios. It is grounded in the child's natural curiosities to make sense of the world around them.

We are all wired to impart knowledge, but that sometimes steps on opportunities to nurture the dispositions for learning required to think critically, to collaborate and to question.

Host Kelly Goodsir will share with you the fundamental aspects to nurture in your teaching practice to drive an inquiry-based program.
