Making Authentic Inquiry Work: 
A Fall Institute for Educators

Learning for a Sustainable Future and Natural Curiosity are again partnering to facilitate this very popular 2 -day PD experience.

Throughout the two days, we will walk the talk and model inquiry methodology.

Who should attend?
  • Teachers of all grades (Preschool to Secondary) who wish to explore how authentic inquiry is being applied to address expectations in social studies, science, language and other subjects - the Institute aligns well with Quebec curriculum (e.g. Broad Areas of Learning, Cross-Curricular Competencies) 
  • School administrators and system leaders who wish to support transformative inquiry-based learning for engaged citizenship.
Outcomes—through their participation, educators will:
  • Receive copies of Natural Curiosity (www.naturalcuriosity.ca/) and Connecting the Dots (www.lsf-lst.ca/dots) in English or French (both languages available online) and gain perspectives on applying inquiry.
  • Identify and begin to address their individual questions, issues and challenges relevant to applying inquiry in their professional practice
  • Experience professional inquiry methods that can in turn be applied with students
  • Investigate collaborative knowledge building principles and methods
  • Gain confidence in planning authentic inquiry learning experiences and applying appropriate assessment methodology
  •  Explore how inquiry and other strategies maximize student engagement.

Cost: $295 CAD (HST, breakfast, lunch, refreshments, and 2 publications included)
