I feel like I have a deeper understanding of the inquiry process because I was directly experiencing it in the Institute
This was the best use of my time in a long while - worth of going to many times over as the people attending help make the difference
It's great to connect with like-minded educators & to know even though we all have similar challenges, we can support each other to find creative solutions & offer advice when needed
It was the best learning experience for Inquiry-based leaning. I am now clear and more comfortable implementing inquiry while incorporating nature.
