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 Spring, the Center is convening three inquiry groups on these topics: Flipped Classroom, Online Teaching & Learning, and a group focused on discussing Parker Palmer’s award-winning book The Courage to Teach.
