This online meet-up will present findings from a year-long research project carried out at Broughton Anglican College on students’ use and perceptions of Guided Inquiry. The study was carried by Dr. Kasey Garrison, Alinda Sheerman (Head of Information Services at the school) and Lee FitzGerald.
The main focus of this presentation is exploring implications for practice, based on the experience of Lee and Alinda, including Lee’s current experience of Guided Inquiry in an International Baccalaureate MYP program.
