What is an active learning environment? What are its benefits? How does it link to the
inquiry cycle?
“Inquiry-based learning (IBL) is a pedagogy which best enables students to experience the
processes of knowledge creation and the key attributes are learning stimulated by inquiry,
a student-centered approach, a move to self-directed learning, and an active approach to
learning” (Bühler, Schlaich, & Sinner, 2018).

“The benefits can accrue to teachers through the integration of teaching and research,
increased enjoyment, and interaction with students and the rewards gained from
enhanced learning outcomes for students” (Bühler, Schlaich, & Sinner, 2018).
