Math faculty, Dr. Ben Wilson (shown on left in both pictures), attended the Academy of Inquiry Based Learning (AIBL) Workshop in Washington D.C. this summer. According to the AIBL website "Inquiry Based Learning, or IBL for short, is a broad range of empirically validated teaching methods which emphasize (a) deeply engaging students and (b) providing students with opportunities to authentically learn by collaborating with their peers." The Department of Mathematics and Physics at Stevenson has been incorporating IBL teaching methods into several math courses for a few years including the Calculus sequence and many of the upper level math courses. The workshop gave Dr. Wilson a chance to develop skills and practice necessary for successful implementation of IBL, in addition to networking with other math faculty also interested in IBL. The workshop was a big success and Dr. Wilson is excited to use much of what he learned there in his classes this fall and beyond!
