New Pan-European Education Project

15 December 2010

INQUIRE is a newly funded European Union project which aims to reinvigorate inquiry-based science education (IBSE) in formal and informal education systems (specifically Learning Outside the Classroom sites) throughout Europe.

 Coordinated by Innsbruck University Botanic Garden with support from Botanic Gardens Conservation International, INQUIRE will involve 17 partners in 11 countries. A one-year training course will be developed for LoTC educators in inquiry-based learning methods, research methodology and assessment techniques. Through training, ongoing mentoring and promotion of best practice, the project will aim to roll this course out to as many providers as possible and embed this pedagogy within European education systems.  For more information click here.
