Inquiry-based learning (IBL) is a learner-centered, active learning environment where learning is cultivated by a process of inquiry owned by the learner. It has roots in a constructivist educational philosophy and is oriented around three components: 1) exploration and discovery (e.g. problem-based learning, open meaning-making), 2) authentic investigations using contextualized learning (e.g. field and case studies), and 3) research-based approach (e.g. research-based learning, project-based learning). IBL begins with an authentic and contextualized problem scenario where learners identify their own issues and questions and the teacher serves as guide in the learning process. It encourages self-regulated learning because the responsibility is on learners to determine issues and research questions and the resources they need to address them. This way learning occurs across all learning domains. This volume covers the issues and concepts of how IBL can be applied to multidisciplinary programs. It serves as a conceptual and practical resource and guide for educators, offering practical examples of IBL in action and diverse strategies on how to implement it in different contexts.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"[this] book offers useful insights to those interested in or responsible for the management of change. While it is likely to be of interest to anyone involved in designing IBL units...its particular focus on change make it suitable for curriculum designers and programme leaders." Reviewed in Education in Chemistry, March 2016, Royal Society of Chemistry.
"After reading about the variety of approaches to IBL in different contexts, it is striking how many different learning activities fall under IBL...the case studies show how IBL in multidisciplinary programs enhances both student learning and instructor teaching. This book gives the impression that IBL is very appropriate for multidisciplinary teaching and learning, since its use of real world or multi-faceted problems necessarily asks students to learn outside the confines of one discipline."Reviewed in Reflective Teaching, The Wabash Center
