Learning Inquiry by Experiencing Inquiry

Educators are adult learners, and like the students we serve, they also have specific needs when it comes to acquiring new knowledge and skills. As such, we are intentional about our instructional design for teacher-learners. We believe it’s important to keep in mind that we learn the most about teaching from actually doing the day-to-day work; second to this, simulations and rehearsals.

We design our workshops to ensure that participants 1) are taught in ways the brain learns best, 2) have time to practice as authentically as possible, 3) see the immediate application to their work, and 4) leave excited about trying it out. Our approach honors the teacher-learner by focusing on the specific knowledge, skills, and dispositions teachers need to create dynamic, engaging, inquiry-based classrooms.
