January PD Topic: Using Inquiry-Based Learning to Teach Global Topics

Thursday January 20, 2022 from 4-5pm

Virtual Zoom Webinar. Register to receive a zoom invitation.

Join us for the kick off to our professional development series, “Skills for Students’ Future in the World.” In this session, teachers will learn more about the Inquiry Design Model and how inquiry-based learning can help students develop skills within the “investigate the world” domain of the Asia Society’s global competency framework. Teachers will explore resources that they can use to bring inquiry into the classroom. This session is geared toward middle and high school teachers who may be new to inquiry-based learning or want to view inquiry lessons that are more specific to cultural or global topics. Teachers have the opportunity to earn 1 CEU for participating in this session.

Learning Outcomes

Teachers will be able to

  • Define inquiry-based learning and develop a rationale for how it can contribute to the development of global competency.
  • Identify resources that they can use to develop their own inquiry-based lessons, including lesson and unit plan templates, as well as other pre-made inquiry lessons that are ready to use in the classroom.
  • Explain the difference between guided inquiry and direct inquiry and determine which would be appropriate for their students at a particular point in their learning.
  • Identify at least one concept and/or unit in which they would be able to use an inquiry-based method of instruction in the classroom and develop compelling and supporting questions for the lesson.
