What is Inquiry-based learning? 'Learning should be based around student's questions. … students … work together to solve problems rather than receiving direct instructions on what to do from the teacher. The teacher's job in an inquiry learning environment is therefore not to provide knowledge, but instead to help students along the process of discovering knowledge themselves.'
'Inquiry-based learning is a student centred or active learning approach
that takes as its starting point the natural process of inquiry, building
on this to develop information processing and problem-solving skills.
The focus is on 'how we know' rather than 'what we know', with students
actively involved in the construction of their own knowledge'.
Inquiry Learning is undertaken in the Middle School and the Senior School.
