10 Inquiry is an approach to learning whereby students find and use a variety of sources of information and ideas to increase their understanding of a problem, topic, or issue. It espouses investigation, exploration, search, quest, research, pursuit, and study. It does not stand alone.. [and] is enhanced by involvement with a community of learners… However, without some guidance, it can be daunting. (Kuhlthau, 2007)
