Inquiry Based Learning Workshop for Mathematics

Date: Apr 04, 2020

Location: UTSA Institute of Texan Cultures, 801 E. Cesar E. Chavez Blvd.
Cost: $0

Inquiry Based Learning, or IBL for short, describes a broad range of empirically validated teaching methods which emphasize deeply engaging students and providing students with opportunities to learn authentically by collaborating with their peers. Defined broadly, IBL supports the use of a wide range of empirically validated teaching methods in mathematics courses to provide better instruction to students of all ages.

This workshop is for mathematics teachers in K-12 and higher education who would like to work together to make mathematics classes more engaging and impactful for students. During the morning session, you will learn how professors in higher education use IBL, including how they develop course materials and make decisions about content. In the afternoon, participants themselves will collaborate in an IBL activity culminating in development of materials for use in their own classrooms. Attend this workshop if you’d like to join a network of professionals interested in IBL who are willing to share teaching experiences and collaborate.

CPE: 7 hours
