Inquiry in creative places
On the 28-29 September European School hosted an IB PYP in-school Category 3 “Inquiry in creative places” workshop. The workshop looks at how the PYP framework provides opportunities for all learners to engage in relevant and significant inquiries through the transdisciplinary themes and in single-subject classes.
Participants inquired into critique a range of inquiry models emphasizing that inquiry is an ongoing process that leads to reflection, new inquiries and deep understanding. Inquiry is true differentiation, supporting the personal construction of meaning and meaningful action regardless of language competency or learning style.
The professional development sessions were led by Darren Arbour. Darren is an IBEN member; he facilitates teacher training workshops and brings international experience to the school environment.
