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 five inquiry groups on these topics: Contemplative Pedagogy, Flipped Classroom, Online Teaching & Learning, Teaching & Learning with Technology and a new 4-part asynchronous online offering on Re-envisioning Lectures to Deepen Learning.
