The nine day December workshop is the face-to-face component of the nine-month web course on IIE 2015 (Inquiry and Integration for Education 2015), a teacher enhancement program that aims at developing the educators' capacity to develop among secondary and tertiary students the ability for inquiry and integration, and the deep learning that results from these pursuits (http://www.schoolofthinq.com/learning_ideas/2) A course of this scope and caliber does not exist anywhere in the world.
There are 300 participants who are registered for the course, ranging from school and college teachers (including engineering colleges), school administrators (curriculum directors, principals), NGO folks, and teacher education students. Out of these, we have invited 27 participants for the face to face workshop, based on their performance in the web component.
IIE-2015 (http://www.schoolofthinq.com/learning_ideas/2) is a structured and expanded incarnation of Sci-Ed (Science Education) that we had offered twice earlier. The current version covers not only scientific inquiry, but also mathematical inquiry and humanistic inquiry. It has biweekly assignments, and active discussion forums, supplemented by a wealth of video materials that demonstrate actual classroom activities. These features were absent in the Sci-Ed courses.
IIE 2015 has a team of internationally well known mentors and a team of seven instructors.
