Inquiry-Based Learning Community of Practice

Inquiry-based learning is a teaching approach that is typically characterized by learner-centered and student driven design, where students are actively involved in shaping and enacting the learning process.  Inquiry-based learning is highly collaborative, and often involves the instructor taking a role as a facilitator rather than a “teacher.”

The Taylor Institute for Teaching and Learning is hosting a community of practice for teaching colleagues at the University of Calgary to explore the idea of inquiry-based learning more deeply.  This group provides a venue for sharing ideas, engaging in collaborative problem solving, and sharing resources with respect to a broad range of inquiry-based learning approaches and strategies. 

The inquiry-based learning community of practice will meet on the following dates and times in the Taylor Institute for Teaching and Learning, Learning Studio F:

  • Thursday October 5, 11:00am - 12:00pm
  • December 13, 3:30 - 4:30pm
  • Friday January 5, 9:00 - 10:00am
  • Tuesday February 13, 10:00 - 11:00am
