Resources

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.
