Dear Colleagues, Friends, & Supporters,

We hope you are all safe and healthy in this difficult time of covid-19.

Christine von Renesse and Volker Ecke wrote a blog this summer as a means to share some of the resources and experiences they have had with moving their inquiry-based classes online to a synchronous remote format. We hope that their blog will give you some ideas as you are preparing for your fall classes.

We keep being actively involved in the New England Inquiry-Based Learning in Mathematics Community. Have you considered joining your regional IBL community or starting your own? We have written a blog about the strategies we used to start and maintain our community. We hope it can be a valuable resource for some of you.

Our next New England event is our annual conference on October 24th 2020. If you live in or close to New England, make sure to join the email list to stay updated on events and professional learning communities!

We wish you all a safe and successful fall semester,

Julian Fleron, Phil Hotchkiss, Volker Ecke, & Christine von Renesse.

p.s. In case you have missed it: our website allows faculty to create a free account and access teacher materials to some of our books.

Faculty collaborating

The purpose of this blog is to engage you in thinking about some aspects of planning events for your IBL community, as well as providing you with the activities the New England region (NE-IBLM) has offered over the last 2 years.
