Since opening the door to Inquire Within just over four years ago, contributors have come and gone, enthusiasm has waxed and waned, there have been periods of abundance and periods of drought…
Yet our 4,062 (plus!) readers are still ‘inquiring within’ and we are not about to close that door, even if there haven’t been many new posts of late.
True inquirers never give up.
The educators who contribute to this blog may not have posted in a while, but that’s because they have been very busy inquiring themselves... into how education can change, into how their students learn and how they themselves learn, into the best approaches to teaching and learning, not just for the present but for the future.
So, meanwhile, if…
- You constantly inquire within (yourself)
- You have a deep interest in inquiry learning in all its forms
- Student centred learning is at the core of what you do and what you believe
- You are always questioning, wondering, exploring, experimenting and encouraging your students to do the same…
…then you might enjoy revisiting some of these old posts (the most frequently read over the past four years of this blog) exploring inquiry learning from a range of perspectives…

If you haven’t contributed in a while, the start of a new year is the time. If you haven’t contributed before and you’d like to be a guest contributor (or a more regular one), inquire within.
I believe 2015 will bring an explosion of new posts at Inquire Within!
