I am aware that it is the limit date for the submission of articles for the journal, but better late than never!!!
I have spoken to a girl who is studying law and German, she is in her final year, and although she doesnâ€™t seem to have any IBL modules, she told me an anecdote that happened not long ago which can be associated to an â€œinquiry-based learningâ€ experience.
I hope it will help for the journalâ€¦
Basically, she has got a coursework on Family Law. She is currently studying the cases when the father takes the children to another country to keep them with him (and inversely). And the sanctions are different according which country you take them to!
In continuation, she will have to interview members of public (from social services for instance), to get actual facts happening in everyday life.
Anyway, she has to carry out a lot of research by herself, among textbooks, footnotes, articlesâ€¦
This could be considered an boring and tedious, but surprisingly she is liking it! She said to me that when you are interested in a topic, when it comes to inquiry-based learning and research, you are far more likely to go in depth into it, than if you were told to. She seemed really motivated and willing to achieve this coursework in full details.
This story teaches us something, well reminds us that if you are studying the subject you really like, then you will actually enjoy it. Usually, when one likes a subject, he is willing to learn more about it, without someone pushing him to, and even learning more than being taught by someone!!!
The lectures are here to guide us, and all the additional elements we can bring into it will help us to get a good grade J
(Well, this is my interpretation, you donâ€™t have to leave it on the article lol)
Hope you will be able to make use of it
Have a good evening everyone,
