Traveling Workshops

What are Traveling Workshops?

Traveling workshops are Inquiry Based Learning Workshops (IBL) that are up to 1 day long. These workshops focus on learning about what IBL is, seeing different styles of IBL classrooms, and experiencing  strategies for how to begin to implement IBL in the classroom. The topics of traveling workshops vary, and are often geared more toward a specific aspect of IBL based on the needs of the local community.

What can I expect at a Traveling Workshop

The content of traveling workshops vary based on the needs of local hosts. However, in general, you can expect to learn more about what IBL is and small steps to begin to implement IBL into your classroom. If you have existing IBL courses, these workshops can provide additional ideas for you to incorporate in your classroom. 

Who leads the workshop?

We have a team of experienced IBL workshop facilitators who will lead the workshops! Specific leaders depend on the workshop content and needs. To see our team, visit the workshop leaders webpage!


Traveling workshops are hosted by colleges and universities in communities across the country and as a result, the workshop locations vary. To view our list of upcoming and past workshops, visit the past and future IBL workshops page!

How do I host a Traveling Workhsop

In order to host a traveling workshop, please email Stan Yoshinobu for more details. Although we would like to provide every community with a traveling workshop, due to limited funding and time constraints, it may not be possible. For an overview of hosting a traveling workshop, please visit the hosting a traveling workshop webpage!

Where can I find more information on IBL?

There are many resources available to learn more about Inquiry Based Learning. This AIBL website is a great place to start with information; About AIBL, the IBL Blog, and The IBL Blog Playlist

There are also a lot of great resources on the AIBL Youtube channel. The channel has both student and instructor voices and allows other instructors to learn more about IBL and how it impacts the math community and student learning. 

Discovering the Art of Mathematics (DAoM) also has a lot of resources on their website that may be of help to you!
