This interactive session will report on the development and outcomes of an inquiry-based learning (IBL) programme designed for international students undertaking a Masters degree in education. The Programme directly targeted three themes familiar in the IBL literature: collaborative inquiry, information literacy and networked learning. The presenters will detail how these themes were deployed and used to inform the Programme’s curricular and pedagogic strategy. Workshop participants will learn about the benefits and difficulties in using IBL as a guiding framework in higher education particularly with international student cohorts. Throughout the session participants will be invited to question and comment on the use of IBL both from the example presented and in relation to their own prospective applications.
