The Breaking the Barriers in Education semester was based on inquiry-based learning:
"Personal Inquiries Rationale and Process Rationale:
Using this inquiry based approach will give you an opportunity to personalize your learning by exploring questions and ideas that interest you and that build on your prior knowledge and background. Rather than fitting into the agenda of an instructor, you will create questions that are located within course content outcomes (School Governance, Social Justice, Learning Diversity) and take them to a place that is meaningful to you and your peers as beginning educators." (Breaking Barriers Website)
Within our learning pods, we collaborated with our instructors to pick inquiry questions that covered the courses outcomes and interested all members of the pod. We each researched a question and presented to each other on Friday morning.
