CEFEDEM practice inquiry

About the method

Practice-inquiry is an exercise/project conducted long-term (one school year for example) first developed in a study program for musicians. In this program the teaching methods lean on project-based learning, which “practice-inquiry” is a part of. Students are thus a researcher (to lead an inquiry), educator (to teach people to play) and performer (to know how to play). In addition, the proposed framework invites each student to solicit resources to feed their work. The method addresses the question of supporting development of a “Practitioner-Researcher”. Teaching means to implement and develop a number of activities that make the practitioners co-producer and co-authors of knowledge.
