Inquiry-based learning

We have been teaching about Inquiry-based learning (IBL) a while and practicing it ourselves. Students in teacher education at the University of Agder have experienced IBL themselves and some try to put it into practice. We have developed four short videos visualizing what IBL entails in the classroom practice. An article based on the development of these videos has been submitted to the online journal NorDiNA. The title is: Designing Videos on Inquiry-Based Learning for use in Teacher Education – Investigating and Exploring Design Principles the Design Principles. Those who wish to use theory on IBL and references to previous research for their own work, please download (and reference) the following document.
