Several initiatives on collaborative inquiry-based learning – “co-inquiry” – have been emerging in Higher Education and Secondary schools. Most of them are funded by local governments and the European Commission. The urban inquiry project is an example, which is based on various initiatives.
Urban Inquiry offers open educational resources, learning technologies and pedagogical approaches for formal education curriculum and informal learning opportunities promoted by universities, schools, science centres, museums, CSO and citizens associations.
Our aim focuses on supporting educators, researchers and learners to identify authentic scenarios, describe collective problems scientifically and apply open science tools for socio-scientific knowledge construction.
Urban inquiry projects help participants develop inquiry skills for responsible research and innovation for envisioning and contributing to improvements in their cities.
