INQR 1000 is a discussion-based course designed to encourage first and second year students to use active learning and critical inquiry to create questions about a particular topic of interest and present their findings in an academic EXPO. Over 1000 undergraduate students have reported their success in developing the INQR 1000 skills which include: asking relevant questions; collecting appropriate resources; engaging in positive and meaningful discussions; contributing effectively to a group. We recently asked INQR faculty how they perceived students' development in terms of the learning outcomes. What resulted was surprising. This presentation would be ideal for audiences interested in student-directed learning, and the impact of faculty-student interaction for achieving learning outcomes. It would also be relevant for professionals interested in developing a topic-driven critical thinking course for undergraduate students.
