Inquiry Groups

Inquiry groups are aimed at bringing together a discussion group around a specific topic of mutual interest in teaching and learning in higher education. These could be discussion of a specific pedagogical approach (e.g., contemplative pedagogy or the flipped classroom), book discussion groups, issues within a specific discipline, and factors influencing student learning (e.g., creativity or the working student).

This Fall, the Center is convening two inquiry groups: one for faculty interested in “flipping the classroom,” the other on teaching and learning online.
