Undergraduates Engaging in Inquiry is a learning community that explores the role of inquiry in student learning and development. This community of scholars, facilitated by Walt Hurley and Prasanta Kalita (2007-2008 Distinguished Teacher Scholars), is open to all who are interested in helping their students become better learners, becoming more scholarly teachers, taking an active role in a community of like-minded learners, and sharing scholarly work with colleagues.
Drop by for conversation, sharing of ideas and experiences, scholarly discussion of inquiry and learning, and of course, refreshments.
Hope to see you there.
