This QEP aims to provide students with the skills they need to become lifelong learners by providing them with opportunities to engage in inquiry-based learning.

  • It will help students apply critical thinking, creative, and research-based skills to larger and more complex local and global issues.
  • Topic areas that might especially benefit from students’ development of these skills are: global and community problems related to health, climate change, technology, community and culture, conflict, communication, and creativity.
  • Inquiry-based learning could be integrated into the curriculum through seminar classes, case-based analyses and discussions, and/or activities that take place outside of the classroom.
