Welcome to the Inquiring Mind site. Inquiry learning is a passion of mine, I have been implementing it in varying forms since I began my teaching career over 30 years ago. This site is a collection of information, research results and resources about inquiry learning that I compiled during my time as a Ministry of Education e-learning fellow and updated from my ongoing research and experience as a teacher and facilitator of learning for teachers.

If you are interested in having me provide professional development for your school or cluster, check out the Professional Development page. I am accredited by the NZ Ministry of Education for Ministry or school-funded PLD. For school-funded PLD costs can be found here.

I have developed two new companion sites:

Web Resources For Inquiry and Apps for Inquiry (Android and i-pad apps) and have a Facebook Group - for discussion and questions relating to inquiry-based learning. There is also a section on my LWDT Support Weebly with inquiry examples, information and resources. You can also find me on Twitter and Pinterest. My other sites can be found here.
