Inquiry-based learning puts students in the driver’s seat, confronting them with decision making, critical thinking, and problem solving. But how do you find these moments in “recipe-book” labs or how do can you design a practical session from the ground up to incorporate inquiry-based learning. This two hour session will cover models of inquiry-based learning, equip participants with strategies for implementing inquiry-based learning in their labs, and instruct participants on how to develop new curriculum incorporating inquiry-based learning.

*This session can count as Labs/Practicals Tutorial Training
