Abstract:Can the notion of individual inquiry be extended to community inquiry, in which driving questions, modes of investigation, concrete action, collaboration, and reflection derive from community processes? If so, how can that be defined and supported in productive, moral ways? This presentation will explore definitions of inquiry, in particular efforts to extend inquiry-based learning from a process inquiry to more substantive inquiry, based on connecting formal learning to lived experience in communities. The discussion will draw from work in place-based communities as discussed in "Coffee Cups, Frogs, and Lived Experience" . I reworked that informal talk into "From Hull House to Paseo Boricua: The theory and practice of community inquiry" for those interested in more philosophical and historical background.
