In this section you will find a host of resources for teaching IBSE. We’ve searched through many books, education packs and websites to find resources relevant for teaching in botanic gardens and other informal education settings. For each one we’ve prepared a short review and a link to the relevant website. We have also developed resources especially for the INQUIRE project. These are available to everyone participating in an INQUIRE course. To sign up for an INQUIRE course click here.

The EU has invested 67 million euros on disseminating IBSE in Europe between 2010 and 2016 aiming to promote the pedagogy as a tool to improve the quality of science teaching. But what is the evidence of the impact of IBSE on students’ understanding of scientific concepts and processes? Find out what a comprehensive review of the Minner et al. (2010) have revealed about the the potential of inquiry-based approaches.Expand to view comments | 0 comments Collapse comments

Large and complex topics, like how ecosystems work for example, can be challenging to explain. Using small, observable experiments can therefore be useful in simulating of landscape-scale processes. Scientists have used pitcher plants as tiny model ecosystems to study how “tipping points” are triggered in lakes and ponds. Perhaps this could generate some ideas for IBSE demonstrations?
