The art of inquiry starts from a belief that the world is a fascinating place. Units of study in all subject areas begin with an essential question that frames the topic and promotes deep critical thinking. IBL is a form of active learning that starts by posing questions, problems or scenarios—rather than simply presenting established facts or portraying a smooth path to knowledge. Students are taught to explore, examine, and ask big questions.
We recognize that each student has his or her own unique methods of learning and varying levels of skill and curiosity. This is why inquiry-based learning, an approach that allows students to delve deeply into course material and merge it with their own interests, is the center of our education process.
