COURSE INFORMATION


If you are an enthusiastic teacher who wants to apply new teaching methods in the classroom, this course is just for you. You will learn “Inquiry-based learning” approach in this course.

Inquiry-based learning is an approach to learning that emphasizes the student’s role in the learning process. Rather than the teacher telling students what they need to know, students are encouraged to explore the material, ask questions, and share ideas.

Inquiry-based learning uses different approaches to learning, including small-group discussion and guided learning. Instead of memorizing facts and material, students learn by doing. This allows them to build knowledge through exploration, experience, and discussion.
