National Austrian INSTEM Workshop


On November 12th 2013, the Vienna Museum of Technology (Technisches Museum Wien) hosted an event on Inquiry Based learning called Inquiry Day, inviting a variety of 200 guests to share their insights, expertise and knowledge. Therefore, this event was the perfect opportunity for the Austrian national workshop.

Among participants of the workshops were teachers, teacher trainers, educational coaches, policy makers and researchers. This made for a very productive workshop, in which three primary questions were addressed:


  1. Why do we want inquiry based learning and teaching?
  2. Which circumstances do we need in order to implement inquiry based learning in real life teaching?
  3. What are the next steps to be taken to realize our goals?

For further information and detailed results of the discussion, please consult the national workshop poster and/or report, which are also available on this website.
