What is inquiry-based learning (IBL), and what does it mean to use IBL in the era of remote, hybrid, and online learning? In this interactive session, we will use the core principles of IBL --- students collaborating on meaningful mathematical tasks while instructors inquire into student thinking and foster equity in their facilitation choices --- to envision what IBL instruction looks like in a variety of online settings. We’ll use video and case studies to examine these principles in action, and also spend time raising and addressing concerns. We will take the perspective throughout that (1) the principles of IBL transport to any setting and (2) an online setting has some features and advantages that can be leveraged to great effect.
This session is aimed at instructors with little to no experience using IBL, or experienced IBL instructors who want more opportunities to think about how to move their IBL courses online.
