Summary: Conference Announcement
USING INQUIRY BASED LEARNING IN SECOND-YEAR CALCULUS
AND COURSES FOR PROSPECTIVE TEACHERS
June 1922, 2012
University of California, Santa Barbara
Santa Barbara, California
Organizers: Doug Moore and Bill Jacob, UCSB Mathematics Department
This workshop will provide participants with a broad exposure to the inquiry based
learning (IBL) style of instruction, where students are guided to develop content
themselves instead of passively listening to lectures. The workshop will include
discussions of videos of actual IBL classes, role-playing sessions conducted by
participants, in-depth sessions with experienced IBL instructors about particular courses,
and the use of technology in IBL. In addition to attending plenary sessions, participants
will participate in two of four possible working groups. The individual working groups
will focus on courses for
(1) pre-service elementary teachers,
(2) pre-service secondary teachers,
(3) linear algebra/differential equations and
(4) multivariable calculus.
The organizers welcome participants who teach in four-year colleges and universities,
