A presentation by members of the Council on Teaching and Learning Excellence

Moving students out of their traditional roles as receivers and consumers of knowledge is the goal of various “problem-driven” approaches to teaching. “Problem-Based Learning,” “Project-Based Learning,” the “Inquiry Method” and “Design thinking” are just a few examples of the many frameworks and protocols for designing courses that turn students into investigators, shapers of knowledge, and solvers of real problems—rather than knowledge tourists. Five members of the VIU Council on Teaching and Learning Excellence are currently exploring these ideas in their own classrooms, in a variety of different ways. They are all experimenting with methods, tools, practices and instructional protocols for putting students into the driver’s seat of inquiry as a mode for learning.

Breakfast will be provided.
