Summary Since the publication of the 1998 Boyer report: Reinventing Undergraduate Education: a Blueprint for America's Research Universities, inquiry-guided learning has been discussed widely in higher education circles. In fact, it is often summoned as a universal answer for various teaching and learning ills in higher education. However, many institutions adopt inquiry-guided learning even as they are struggling to understand what it really is. With eight institutional case studies drawn from colleges and universities in Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States, this volume provides a clear description of inquiry-guided learning based on best practice. It also provides a window into the dynamics of undergraduate education reform using inquiry-guided learning, with a final chapter that compares the eight institutions on key dimensions. It is a resource for institutions attempting undergraduate reform through inquiry-guided learning, for practitioners and scholars of inquiry-guided learning, for instructors seeking good texts for courses on higher education administration, and for administrators seeking to understand and lead undergraduate education reform.
