Welcome to Traralgon College Inquiry-Based Learning
An important aspect of inquiry-based science is the use of open learning. Open learning has no prescribed target or result which students have to achieve. There is an emphasis on the individual manipulating information and creating meaning from a set of given materials or cirumstances. For example, in many conventional traditional science experiments, students are told what the outcome of an experiment will be, or is expected to be, and the student is simply expected to ‘confirm’ this. Another example would be to provide “the big idea” as a hook to stimulate ideas from class.
