Inquiry Learning workshop in Netherlands - deadline for proposals, 1st April
Technology enhanced learning researchers still have time to submit papers for the 'Inquiry Learning - building bridges to practice' workshop at the University of Twente, Netherlands. This event will be held on 29-31 May.
The workshop will 'explore the gap between research and practice. Among the reasons found for not using inquiry learning in the classroom are the shortage of availability of suitable and robust teaching material and methods, and the lack of sufficient (technical) facilities, and examination programmes that do not support inquiry learning.'
If you wish to attend the workshop, please register by May 1st, 2006. One special feature of this event is that participants will have the opportunity to get hands on experience trying out a number of challenging learning inquiry applications.
The Kaleidoscope Computer Supported Inquiry Learning Special Interest Group/EARLI, defines it as an approach 'which involves students in an active, engaged and constructive learning process. By investigating a domain, students learn about (it) and build inquiry skills'
