Inquiry in Teacher Education: A look at the concept and practice of teacher inquiry as it pertains to the CREATE BEd program Phelan, Ann; MacTavish, Marianne; Carr, Wendy


Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre and hosted by the Faculty of Education's CREATE Seminar Series. The re-visioned teacher education (BEd) program will be implemented in September. One of its guiding tenets is the development of an inquiry approach to teacher education. Three inquiry seminars will anchor the new program and, in preparation for this, instructors have piloted the inclusion of inquiry in the Principles of Teaching course in elementary, middle years and secondary cohorts for the past two years. Insights gained from the pilot, from student inquiry projects and from instructor and student feedback will be shared. The presentation offers an opportunity to learn more about the rationale for inquiry in teacher education and to discuss possibilities for the coming program.
