The Academy of Inquiry Based Learning
Welcome to the website and online member community for the Academy of Inquiry Based Learning. We hope you will explore the various features our site has to offer. We created this online space to support a dynamic environment, where people interested in IBL can interact and exchange ideas.
AIBL is a community of instructors, teachers, and supporters of inquiry-based learning. Our philosophy is "big tent IBL." What this means is that we define IBL broadly, and support the use of a wide range of teaching methods in mathematics courses consistent with courses where students are (a) deeply engaged in rich mathematical tasks, and (b) have ample opportunities to collaborate with peers (where collaboration is defined broadly).
One of the goals of AIBL is to become a national resource for IBL methods for a wide range of courses and institutional environments. While we of course support instructors interested in teaching a full IBL course (or Modified Moore Method), we also support equally those who are interested in making modifications and adaptations of IBL to suit specific, local needs.
Give IBL a try or keep improving your craft. We are glad you're here, and we're here to support you!
