|About Inquiry-Based Learning
In inquiry-based learning instructors create an environment in which students are free to ask questions, learn concepts, and explore possible solutions within a real-world, project-based context. Inquiry-based units are structured around an open-ended, intriguing essential question that is used to direct students towards the objectives of the unit and invites students to be a part of the solution to the unit's dilemma.
