Title: Whatever You Might Call It: questions and answers about interactive, student-centered teaching
Abstract: Inquiry-based learning (IBL) is a buzz word in college mathematics teaching that can mean many different things to different people. It tends to be an umbrella term that captures methods of teaching and types of problems that promote students making sense of mathematics actively and collaboratively. This semester's opening session of the Seminar on Teaching Mathematics will feature a panel with of instructors who have taught "IBL" courses in the Department. What do they do? How do they get it to work? These and others of your questions will allow us to explore teaching an interactive classroom that values and supports student thinking are, and how it works. Come with questions!
