What is Inquiry?
  • Creating opportunities to engage people in active
    learning based on their own questions.
  • A learner centered and learner driven process.
  • A cycle where each question leads to an
    exploration which will then lead to more
    questions to investigate.
  • The process of asking, investigating, creating,
    discussing, and reflecting, and then asking again.

Community Inquiry Labs
A place where members of a community come
together to develop shared capacity and work on
common problems. "Community" support for
collaborative activity and for creating knowledge
that is connected to people's values,
history, and lived experiences. "Inquiry"
support for open-ended, democratic, participatory
engagement. "Laboratory" a space and resources
to bring theory and action together in an
experimental and critical manner. A CIL is most
importantly a concept
