Helping students adopt an Inquiry Mindset – March 6, 2019
As described in our introduction to the renewed curriculum, there are three foundational pillars that support our curriculum vision to develop highly skilled and competent physical therapy practitioners. One of these pillars emphasizes the adoption of an Inquiry Mindset, which we characterize as a set of behaviours that will prepare students to succeed as physical therapists. We are excited to share with you how the Inquiry Mindset pillar shapes the overall teaching and learning environment in the new MScPT curriculum in this brief 10-minute online presentation on the Inquiry Mindset. Throughout the presentation, we describe concrete examples where an inquiry mindset may be fostered in the curriculum. At the end of the presentation, we invite you to submit your ideas of how an Inquiry Mindset might be observed in physical therapy practice. Please note that you will be able to type and submit your ideas right in the presentation slide. We look forward to hearing your thoughts about the inquiry mindset pillar.
