The Power of Inquiry as a Way of Learning in Undergraduate Education at a Large Research University
Fowler, Debra A.; Matthews, Pamela R.; Schielack, Jane F.; Webb, Robert C.; Wu, X. Ben
New Directions for Teaching and Learning, n129 p81-91 Spr 2012
Inquiry-guided learning (IGL) is not new to Texas A&M University, a large research-extensive institution. The ideas of asking questions and seeking answers have always been associated at this university with both learning and discovery. In this article the authors present how, as a natural extension, Texas A&M University infuses IGL more broadly and earlier in the undergraduate learning experience across multiple disciplines.
