The Community Of Inquiry: It's Processes and Benefits
Welcome to a community where critical, creative, collaborative and caring thinking form the underlying structures of learning.
We at SAPEA are a community of educators who work to implement this vision in all out teaching opportunities.
In broad pedagogical terms a lesson progression looks like this:
Step 1 | A stimulus is given
Step 2 | Students generate questions prompted by the stimulus
Step 3 | Students choose one question and discuss their thoughts.
Step 4 | Students reflect on the discussion and how their thinking has changed
Educational outcomes for the Community of Inquiry include;
- Critical and creative thinking
- Student-led discussion
- Ethical understanding
- Student voice and agency
