Inquiry Groups

Inquiry groups provide a forum for all Northeastern educators to come together for ongoing dialogue and reflection on a specific topic in teaching and learning.

Inquiry groups typically involve periodic group meetings (either in person or online) over the course of a semester.

Our two inquiry groups during Fall 2019 include:

Online Learning Inquiry Group: This inquiry group will meet for five bi-weekly sessions in a synchronous, online format to discuss the new book Small Teaching Online by Flower Darby and James M. Lang. To receive a copy of the text, register by 9/13 and commit to participating in all meetings. Meetings also include time for participants to discuss current experiences and challenges in their online teaching. Meeting dates are 9/18, 10/2, 10/16, 10/30, and 11/13. Register here.

Intercultural Pedagogy Inquiry Group: This inquiry group will meet for six bi-weekly sessions to explore interculturally informed approaches for creating inclusive learning environments, and to identify strategies for supporting students of diverse backgrounds, both domestic and international, in acculturating in Northeastern classrooms. To guide our discussion, we will be reading Teaching Interculturally (Lee et al., 2017), which provides scholar-practitioners with a theoretical foundation as well as practical tools. To receive a copy of the text, register by 9/20 and commit to participating in all meetings. Meeting dates are 9/24, 10/8, 10/22, 11/5, 11/19, and 12/3. Register here.
