Over the past year CILASS (Centre for Inquiry-based Learning in the Arts and Social Sciences), a Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning at the University of Sheffield, has been developing learning design case studies of the inquiry-based learning curriculum development projects it has been funding across the University. We now have over 30 learning designs across a number of disciplines and ranging in scope from relatively small activities to entire inquiry-based modules, which can be viewed at our case studies website.
In addition, we have been working with a learning design tools known as LAMS (Learning Activity Management System) to investigate its effectiveness indesigning for inquiry-based learning. The results of this project, known as DESILA (Designing and Sharing Inquiry-based Learning Activities) can be seen at the project website, while individual case studies are accessed via the CILASS case studies website.
