What is Inquiry Based Learning?

3252013_112905_0.jpgInquiry Based Learning (IBL) is an instructional methodology that tries to put the "power of wonder" into the classroom.



"Inquiry is a way of looking at the world, a questioning stance we take when we seek to learn something we don't yet know." (Diane Parker, Planning for Inquiry: It's Not an Oxymoron! Urbana, IL: NCTE, 2007, p. 1).


 
IBL or Inquiry, as it is called, puts students' questions at the heart of the learning experience. Even so, it is more than simply encouraging students to ask questions. Students learn effective questioning techniques, investigate the answers to those questions, and construct new understanding about the topic or concept. These experiences engage students in deep learning, which leads to deeper understanding. Research has indicated that IBL enhances student creativity and problem solving skills while building independent thinking.
