IBL:Inquiry Based Learning
In an IBL classroom, the students are the most active participants in the room, which makes it much harder for them to just passively sit and drift through the course. Whether the students are working in groups on specific subjects investigations or critiquing solutions that are presented by other students, they are the ones asking questions, making statements, and discussing them with their peers rather than the teacher. The latter, however, has a major role in making this happen.
This course is aimed at discovering all the positive aspects of the IBL methodology, to observe it in real life classes and to acquire tools that you can use in your own classroom to optimize it for IBL.
This course wants to:
Raise awareness on IBL methodology;
Explore and discover the benefits of IBL in education;
Help participants aknowledge all the methodologies to foster IBL;
Furnish tools to apply IBL to your teaching method;
Create a cross-cultural exchange and understanding with local colleagues on IBL.
Our courses, developed in the framework established by the Erasmus+ Programme, are crafted to include both formal and non-formal education methodologies. Starting with a theoretical approach to the theme of the course, we proceed with non-formal learning strategies in order to guarantee and stimulate an active contribution from the participants involved. In practice, we use: Presentations; Analysis of study cases; Discussions in the classroom; Role-plays; Technical visits to local private and public institutions; Conferences with local professionals to exchange good practices; Job shadowing experiences; Workshops to rethink old practices and introduce new ones.
