Description

Inquiry pedagogy is characterised by students' involvement in questioning, reasoning, observing, conjecturing, data gathering and interpreting, investigative practical work and collaborative discussions, and working with problems from and applicable to real life contexts (Anderson, 2002). Inquiry has been advocated as an effective strategy to increase students' and teachers' interest and motivation in learning science and about the nature of science (Minner et al, 2010).
