What is Inquiry Based Learning?
Inquiry-based learning is an approach to teaching that connects experts with students but in a flipped way, where students are expected to contribute more to sessions than they normally would. Students might be asked questions and together the teacher and student can discuss the question to understand more deeply what the implications of the answers are. The goal is to engage students in a way that normal teaching does not achieve and for students to gain curiosity in the subject matter. Curiosity is an internal feeling which drives us to explore and learn and this is what students should feel when studying a new topic. Higher levels of curiosity have also been linked to increased attention which leads to improvements in information retention and memory. If you want to find out more about how curiosity, attention and memory affect learning, Contact us and we can direct you to the relevant research.
Why do we Teach Inquiry Based Learning?
We use inquiry-based learning as an introduction to a new way of doing things. We aim to provide a different experience where we can help students to learn about what they are interested in. Any subject can be made exciting through the correct approach and conversely, the most interesting subject can be made boring by traditional you listen, I talk teaching. We believe that inquiry-based learning can also be used as a tool for assessment whereby a students progression can be tracked through their ability to understand, interpret and use logic to communicate their ideas. We provide regular updates on students’ progress and through sessions with us you can expect not only an improvement in grades but also an increase in confidence across the board. Communication is key and inquiry-based learning is unrivalled in its ability to engage and promote active interactions with students.
