Abstract
Inquiry-based methods are important student-centered pedagogical tools because they tap the curiosity of the learner and prime students to take an active role in constructing understanding. However, many faculty have little knowledge of how one might plan or implement an inquiry-based approach. For faculty new to inquiry learning, a simple framework that allows students the freedom to construct understanding and provides scaffolding for the instructor to be able to predict what will happen can be very helpful. This session will model an inquiry approach and provide frameworks and strategies for introducing inquiry-based learning to faculty during workshops or consultations.
