Peer Inquiry: Discovering What You Know through Dialogue
Wix, Linney; John-Steiner, Vera
Thinking Skills and Creativity, v3 n3 p217-225 Dec 2008
The article discusses a dialogical peer inquiry process as a practice of co-constructing knowledge in graduate coursework. The process, formerly structured as an exam, was developed by Dr. Vera John-Steiner more than 30 years ago and has been implemented in adapted forms by her students in their teaching. The dialogical peer inquiry process involves collaborating creatively with peers in the co-construction of knowledge. The article discusses the underpinnings of the process and uses voices of students in a graduate art education course to illuminate the process and its meanings for students.
