Russian Teachers Learn about IBSE

The Botanic Garden of Moscow State University (known as “Aptekarskiy Ogorod”) has launched a pilot skills enhancement course for Russian teachers on Inquiry Based Science Education (IBSE). MSU’s INQUIRE course comprises a total of 72 hours of study, subdivided into formal sessions and homework. Right from the start the atmosphere has been informal and lively, enabling the teachers and garden specialists to extract maximum value and work together on tailoring the INQUIRE course to the Russian environment. A suggestion to run a workshop to mark the completion of the pilot course was enthusiastically supported and the event has already been scheduled for 19th May 2012. Everyone is welcome to attend, including our foreign colleagues. To register an interest or find out more, please contact us at
