The INQUIRE Course Manual is now available to download. It is designed to support teachers and educators taking part in inquiry-based training courses running in botanic gardens or similar environmental education sites. Providing useful notes on IBSE and reflective practice, it should be read in conjunction with the booklet that provides exemplar IBSE activities and lesson plans. 

It provides brief background information on IBSE methodology, highlighting its strengths and benefits as well as the barriers and solutions to its implementation. It also focuses on assessment and evaluation, introducing the concept of a community of practice and promoting continuous reflective practice during teaching. It provides a guide to self-evaluation, illustrating ready-to-go techniques for evaluation and data collection as well as introducing a framework for formative and summative assessment and action research. Ultimately, it outlines the planned course modules, including topics, the focus of scientific inquiry, and timing.
