The project strategy is based on three main approaches to facilitate the uptake of InquiryBased Science Education (IBSE). The project will
- Propose a standard-based approach to teaching science by inquiry that outlines instructional models to assist teachers to organise their instruction effectively
- Deploy a series of methods to motivate teachers to adopt inquiry based techniques and activities in their classrooms
- Provide access to a unique collection of open educational resources and teaching practices (linked with the science curricula) that have been reviewed for efficiency and efficacy in promoting inquiry based education and exploring beyond the limitations of classroom instruction.
The Pathway Consortium team will collaborate closely with teachers to develop a support service network designed to help teachers implement the necessary changes, to develop the diagnostics and intervention skills necessary to plan and diffuse innovation in their own contexts.
