Inquiry-Based Teaching and Learning: An Environmental Scan of Approaches Across McMaster University
Staff, students, and faculty associated with the MacPherson Institute, Faculty of Social Sciences, and Arts & Science and Integrated Science Programs are preparing a book chapter on the “The Evolution of Inquiry-Based Learning at McMaster”.
This chapter will contribute to an anthology intended to mark, in 2022, the 50th anniversary of McMaster’s teaching and learning centre and amplify the importance of teaching and learning at McMaster.
All current and former McMaster instructors are invited to participate in a 10-15-minute survey about your perspectives on and any experiences implementing (if relevant) inquiry approaches in your classroom. The survey will be available until August 13.
