INQUIRE Recommendations from Consortium Meetings Report

Over the course of the INQUIRE Project, the INQUIRE Consortium met on five occasions, to discuss the project’s progress – this report outlines the recommendations which came to light at these meetings, as well as looking at some of the research supporting Community of Inquiry processes. 

Meetings were held in different participating countries, so Partners could sample each others’ culture and practices and gain an appreciation of the differing botanic gardens and learning environments involved in the INQUIRE project. Research has shown that active learning is most likely to have a effective and sustained effect. To ensure this was reflected by the project and to create lasting and strong interpersonal relationships between practitioners in order to facilitate the sharing of information, the Consortium aimed to establish a Community of  Inquiry at Consortium Meetings to effectively elucidate their thoughts, knowledge, and experiences. 

Allowing Partners a space for expression, reflection, knowledge and practice-sharing, Consortium Meetings were an essential part of the INQUIRE Project. The relationships built during meetings meant that language barriers were reduced, and the feeling of being an active, involved participant motivated Partners to produce high quality work, learn collaboratively and think creatively.
