Inquiry-based learning (IBL) is a student-centered, hands-on method for your students to investigate the world around them. Many of our students have experienced gaps in their instruction over the chaos of the last few years. Inquiry allows teachers and students to take abstract concepts and experience them in a concrete environment. This webinar will cover the basics of implementing IBL in your science program in order to help your teachers use this powerful tool to overcome the gaps in their students understanding.
