Want to make your lessons more inquiry-based but stuck in a 100+ lecture hall? No problem. Learn these simple and effective techniques for making any lecture into an inquiry-based lesson with nothing more than a paper and a pencil or Power Point slide. Participants will: (1) Learn, model and practice four hands-free inquiry-based techniques: spot the lie, give the answers in the back of the book, find the pattern and play the fool and (2) Develop a plan for incorporating hands-free inquiry-based techniques into lessons to increase student engagement and conceptual understanding.
