Inquiry-based learning and teaching strives to make learning more interactive and connected to everyday students' lives. As such, Inquiry-based learning is a more student centered way of learning that uses teachers as facilitators of new knowledge. The intended audience for this wiki is educators, and as such, this wiki intends to supply educators with resources in which they can do further reading and research about the topic. As seen in our concept map below, we have divided up the topic into four sections: Characteristics, Resources, Lessons, and Strategies. Within each area, one can find many areas in which to explore.
