Practical and Effective Inquiry-Based Teaching Strategies for Engaging Students

Presented by: Barbara Tewksbury, PhD, Hamilton College

This short workshop will introduce a set of effective inquiry-based strategies along with ideas for how to implement them successfully in the classroom. Participants will have a chance to outline a specific activity that can be implemented immediately. Although this workshop can be taken as a stand-alone, those who participate in the course design portion on Wednesday night and Thursday will outline an activity that specifically addresses one of the course goals developed earlier in the workshop.

Participation in this workshop is limited to registered participants only. All registered participants are required to attend the entire workshop.

Lunch will be provided at 12:30pm and refreshments will be available in the afternoon. If you have any specific dietary needs, please do let us know.
