A LEARN Initiative

Spring 2011 Vol.4 No.2 - Inquiry: Perspectives, Processes and Possibilities

This issue presents a range of approaches, examples and issues around the theme of inquiry that we hope will help educators deepen their understanding of the theme and see new possibilities within their own practices.

The journal is available in multiple formats. The interactive version allows readers to turn pages, hear authors read their work, enjoy podcasts, and experience other media. The PDF version is easy to download and print. Printed, bound copies are also available. They can be purchased at lulu.com in black and white and colour, and are priced at the cost of printing.
