Student engagement. Professional development. “Real-world” applications of class content. These are issues facing instructors across STEM, social science, and the humanities. Data shows that guided-inquiry learning can foster student motivation and enhance student understandings and competencies. The goal of guided-inquiry learning is to develop activities and assignments that help move students from “thinking” to “thinking and doing”. The primary objective of this approach is that students leave the classroom with skills, experiences, and concrete deliverables that contribute to their professional development – and career prospects.This workshop provides strategies on preparing students for life beyond the classroom through three types of process-based learning: labs, simulations, and case studies.Objectives:  By the end of this workshop, students will be able to…
  • Identify strategies for designing and implementing guided-inquiry learning activities
  • Compare and contrast labs, simulations, and case studies in the context of goal-oriented skills development and problem-based learning 
  • Address the use of guided-inquiry learning in “soft skills” development (e.g., communication, negotiation, collaboration, and decision-making)
