Event description

Description

The Summer Inquiry Institute is a three-day professional learning experience for educators in the San Diego area. Join your fellow teachers and experience inquiry as a learner, examine different approaches to hands-on learning, explore NGSS science and engineering practices (SEPs) through phenomena, engage in full scientific inquiry and consider ways to include inquiry in your own classroom.

This workshop is based upon the Fundamentals of Inquiry professional development program developed by the Exploratorium, and incorporates the Next Generation Science Standards.

Summer Inquiry Institute Dates:

  • June 26-28, 2019: 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. each day
  • July 1-3, 2019: 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. each day


Who is this workshop for?

The Inquiry Institute works with K-12 teachers, afterschool and informal educators, preservice teachers and the university community. If you write curriculum, teach science at any level, seek assistance with learner-control facilitation, or want to modify existing lessons to be more inquiry-based, the Inquiry Institute can help.

  • Group Registration - for 3 or more attendees registering at the same time - 10% off.

What other educators are saying:

"I have actionable items that I can definitely take back to my school. Having been to a lot of inquiry based workshops, this was definitely one of the best."

- Kyle, Winter Inquiry Institute 2019

"I'm excited because the three days made me realize that I do inquiry already for some lessons and for the ones I don't I can make shifts easily!"

- Kellie, Summer Inquiry Institute 2018

"I enjoyed being able to experience [inquiry] first hand so I can relate with my students more. I do not need to necessarily reinvent the wheel. I just need to "shift" the traditional lesson so they are more inquiry led."

- Ciera, Winter Inquiry Institute 2018

"Rather than leaving with a binder of daunting materials to read, I left with firsthand experience and knowledge that is 100% feasible for me to implement."

- Jill, Summer Inquiry Institute 2017

What Is Inquiry?

(From the Exploratorium)

Good science education requires both learning scientific concepts and developing scientific thinking skills. Inquiry is an approach to learning that involves a process of exploring the natural or material world, and that leads to asking questions, making discoveries, and testing those discoveries in the search for new understanding. Inquiry, as it relates to science education, should mirror as closely as possible the enterprise of doing real science.
