Welcome to the Academy of Inquiry Based Learning website! Here you can find more information on what Inquiry Based Learning (IBL) is about and connect with other professionals who also utilize IBL in their own classrooms.
What is Inquiry Based Learning?
Inquiry Based Learning, or IBL for short, is a broad range of empirically validated teaching methods which emphasize (a) deeply engaging students and (b) providing students with opportunities to authentically learn by collaborating with their peers.
What is AIBL?
The Academy of Inquiry Based Learning (AIBL) is a community of college math instructors, math teachers, and supporters of inquiry-based learning funded by the National Science Foundation project, PRODUCT. Our philosophy is "big tent IBL." What this means is that we define IBL broadly, and support the use of a wide range of empirically-validated teaching methods in mathematics courses to better the state of mathematics education.
One of the goals of AIBL is to improve undergraduate math education via increasing the use of IBL methods across a wide range of courses and institutional environments. We accomplish this by hosting workshops and a supportive AIBL community committed to helping instructors adapt IBL methods to suit the specific local needs of their students and institution.
