Inquiry and Design Institute for Connected Learning

June 25-29, 2018

Inquiry and Design promotes curiosity and ignites critical thinking skills needed for 21st century learning and success. Inquirers ask questions and research what matters to them. Teachers facilitate learning as a process to allow students to take ownership of what they want to know.

  • Connect with outside partners to plan for learning that extends from the classroom into the city.

  • Experience the power of inquiry-based connected learning.

  • Design inquiry-based connected learning units based on your content area and teaching standards.

  • Develop new relationships with other educators to reflect and re-think teaching and learning.
