Learning to Research, Researching to Learn: Free Webinar & Articles

How can we teach students to be inquisitive? Critical thinking and mindsets open to inquiry are needed, whether or not students are preparing to conduct empirical research. In this webinar, we will explore ways to use updated inquiry models of instruction (Weil, Joyce, & Calhoun, 2015) and experiential research activities in curricular or methods courses.

Creating a Culture of Inquiry in the Classroom

It is essential in this time to change the ways we teach– whether we work with children or adults. They need the opportunity to develop skills needed to scrutinize, dig deeper, and ask hard questions! In the process, perhaps they avoid taking information they receive at face value, and can better understand the importance of scientific, evidence-based approaches. And these skills and mindsets prepare them to be future researchers!
