ABSTRACT:
Over the last few decades, nursing education in the world has undergone many changes in its length, content and academic levels. The Inquiry Based Learning (IBL) approach derives ultimately from the Problem Based Learning (PBL) model. This was originally developed in Canada at McMasterUniversity, to be used in their medical school as a way of overcoming learner passivity and linking theory and practice. Nursing Education needed a more flexible curriculum which would help to develop lifelong learning skills and show the importance of competence in practical skills. To achieve these objectives, the use of student-centred learning methodologies such as IBL was encouraged. This article provides information regarding IBL which will aid in developing understanding of this process.
