(2 ECTS)


Attention: This is a two-day seminar (December, 9th and 16th, 2011)

Inquiry-Based Learning: When one encounters a simple and familiar problem, it is usually appropriate to apply routine, tried-and-true methods to solve it. But as we all know, the world is complex; many problems are not simple, and even when they are they may appear in an unfamiliar guise.  Moreover, yesterday's solutions may not work on today's version of the problem. In order to deal with a complex and changing world, we need to be able to modify, even invent, solutions. We need to have ways of making sense of our experiences in order to prepare for enlarged experiences in the future. In short, we need to be able to inquire, and to learn through that inquiry.

This seminar draws from the work of philosophers (Plato, Peirce, Dewey), psychologists (Piaget, Vygotsky), educators (Freire, Knowles, Argyris, Schön) and others to examine what inquiry-based learning is and how it applies to work and life. It considers both individual and organizational learning.

The emphasis is on connecting theory and practice, including the "soft skills" of communication, understanding the perspective of others, finding as well as solving problems, and integrating knowledge from multiples sources and media. Activities within and between the seminar sessions will include working with web-based resources. Participants are expected to be active learners who can bring their own questions and experiences to the seminar.
