Inquiry based learning: Using a place-based lens to investigate socio-scientific issues in Science Education


This presentation will share a three part pedagogical strategy for learners to investigate local scientific issues. The first part will develop critical thinking skills. The second part will highlight how learners can drive their own investigation on issues that matter to them and their local community. The third part will offer suggestions for how learners can reflect on their work in order to foster meaningful and lasting engagement/agency.
