Southwestern’s Natural Sciences Division is working hard to prepare for the future of science education. While Southwestern faculty have long changed lives and transformed minds, the Inquiry Initiative invites faculty from Animal Behavior, Biology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Computer Science, Kinesiology, Mathematics, and Physics to develop inquiry-based learning techniques to incorporate into their classrooms and laboratories. Inquiry-based learning in its many forms has been shown to help students from all backgrounds to grow to love and to better understand science. Over the next four-years of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute grant that makes the Inquiry Initiative possible, science and math faculty will learn new means of instruction and assessment and will develop myriad inquiry-based modules. These new pedagogical tools will not only help reinvigorate the bustling scientific community at Southwestern but will also help create great new scientific thinkers for the medical and scientific fields!
