Inquiry Workshop: Monday, July 12 through Thursday, July 15

Join us for 4 days of fellowship as we reflect upon the past year and plan for the year ahead. Thinking routines, documentation, and effective questioning and listening techniques will be shared and practiced to enhance learning and collaboration in any learning environment. Each day’s focus builds upon the previous culminating in actionable plans ready for you to bring to your institution and begin a new year.

Activities will include small group workshops surrounding thinking routines, work with experts in inquiry such as Trevor Mackenzie, cohort groups to develop lessons and units with inquiry in mind, and an unconference to share ideas and gather feedback.
