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 college math instructors, math 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 empirically-validated 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 improve undergraduate math education via increasing the use of IBL methods across a wide range of courses and institutional environments. We support instructors interested in teaching IBL courses and support a community interested in adapting IBL to suit specific, local needs of instructors, students, and institutions.
Here are Links to: IBL RLM Conference at MathFest 2016 Columbus, OH-----2017 TBA soon.
