Why Guided Inquiry Design?
The Guided Inquiry Design process is based on research and designed for deeper student learning. Research tells us that inquiry-based learning requires good instructional design. This course was created so teachers have the tools to generate and design exceptional learning experiences for their students. Based on what we know about how STUDENTS learn from information as students do their own research (Kuhlthau, 2004) your learning designs will transform inquiry learning and research for greater success for you and your students.
Knowing the research and understanding the Guided Inquiry Design phases will give you a clear path for effective unit designs and how to guide inquiry learning with your students, as well.
Dr. Leslie Maniotes is ready to guide your learning!
