Here's a note from Alison Marr, Southwestern University and Patrick Rault, University of Arizona. Alison and Patrick are conference co-chairs of the IBL Conference at MathFest 2017, and are putting together the program for this year.
Interested in learning more about inquiry-based learning (IBL) and active
learning? Have insights on how IBL works in your classroom? Then please consider attending the mini-conference, Constructing the Future of IBL: The Past 20 Years and the Next 20 Years, that will take place in Chicago as part of MathFest on Friday, July 28, 2017 from 5:30PM-9:30PM. The conference will include a panel discussion exploring various aspects of the diversity of IBL, a contributed poster session, roundtable discussions, and a plenary talk on the future of IBL by Stan Yoshinobu. More information about the conference and poster abstract submission can be found at
There is a $25 registration fee which includes heavy hors d'oeuvres, and you must register for the mini-conference when you complete your MathFest registration. We hope to see many of you there!
