Inquiry-based Teaching and Learning:

A Re-imagination Journey

Presented by Dr Barbara Stripling

Description of session

Join Barbara Stripling on a journey to re-imagine inquiry-based teaching and learning through the school library.  In this workshop, you will discover the reasons to move from a research process to an inquiry process, the foundations of the Stripling Model of Inquiry, and the merit of a REACTS taxonomy of creative and authentic assessment products. We will also explore the value of a comprehensive K-12 information fluency continuum that articulates Anchor Standards (Inquiry and Design Thinking, Multiple Literacies, Social and Civic Responsibility, and Personal Growth and Agency) and frames the development of students as information-fluent learners. 

We will take a deep dive into the priority skills of information fluency using the Empire State Information Fluency Continuum’s (ESIFC) scope and sequence, and discover the power of graphic organizers to guide students as they learn new inquiry skills.  Finally, you will be invited to start your own re-imagination journey by glimpsing Stripling’s newest areas of investigation and having an opportunity to develop your own practice in small-group collaboration with colleagues.
