(REF 23135)Transforming Teaching and Learning Environments: Bringing Science to Society

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Our inquiry of focus is how might we transform teaching and learning environments to bring science to society? 

As an enabler of SDG education and advancement, inquiry-based teaching and learning adopts an investigative approach where learners can investigate a problem, search for possible solutions, make observations, ask questions, test out ideas, and think creatively and use their intuition. In this session, we gather to consider opportunities that integrate inquiry-based teaching and learning to transform learning environments, build educator capacity and empower youth in ‘bringing science to society’.

Facilitated by the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE), University of Toronto, this session includes a Moderated Virtual Roundtable where we are joined by researchers, practitioners, entrepreneurs, and enthusiasts to share their perspectives on teaching and learning beyond the classroom followed by our 10-Minute Motivator Series where colleagues from across the globe provide brief insights into various innovative methods and approaches to inquiry-based teaching and learning across the lifespan.
