7 Centre for Excellence in Enquiry-Based Learning In conclusion We believe that EBL is the most natural, creative and enduring method of learning EBL is conformable to nature; it creates learning situations that replicate those encountered by people in everyday life. It is creative because the spirit of enquiry releases the individual and group power of learners to seek imaginative responses to problems It is enduring because autonomous control of processes ensures a deep engagement with every stage of learning
