What is Inquiry-based Learning? Approaches to learning that are based on a process of self-directed inquiry or research IBL approaches include case-study and problem-based learning IBL can be used as the design principle for whole modules or programmes, teaching strategies will be designed to support the inquiry process. IBL could be incorporated into a traditional curriculum The stimulus for an inquiry could, be an intriguing fieldwork problem, a complex `real-life´ case-study, or an interesting research question inquiry is an active, self-directed, questioning and critical approach to developing knowledge

Embedding IL in the curriculum Some projects have an information literacy theme and proposals already identify ways this can be addressed e.g. Use of the Library’s information skills tutorials Extra support for literature searching Additional tutorials to teach information literacy in the context of specific assignments
