Design for Inquiry-based Learning Case Studies
The past six months have witnessed the development and dissemination of a number of case studies of inquiry-based learning (IBL) projects supported and developed by the Centre for Inquiry-based Learning in the Arts and Social Sciences (CILASS), a Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning at the University of Sheffield (www.shef.ac.uk/cilass/cases). The cases aim to provide practitioners with accessible, informative and inspiring resources that illustrate ways in which inquiry-based learning is conceptualised, designed and facilitated in different disciplinary contexts. They are intended to communicate something of the experiences of students and staff who have been involved in inquiry-based learning activities at Sheffield.
