Inquiry, supported by a wide range of resources accessed with the support of the teacher-librarian, is foundational to a strong, dynamic and responsive school library program. The inquiry approach, when activated by teachers working collaboratively with the teacher-librarian, enhances both teaching and learning and enables students to move to independent thinking and learning.
In this online course, students will design inquiry-based learning experiences by:
- Selecting, assessing and incorporating appropriate resources;
- incorporating strategies for assessment of and for learning; and
- exploring and utilizing a variety of instructional tools, strategies and technologies to design inquiry learning opportunities.
