Looks very interesting Maha. Ordered the book on Inquiry Driven Learners and love the student centered approach to creating new learning opportunities. If you need someone to drive your students crazy, count me in as a volunteer. Somewhere I’ve downloaded a paper on cross-cultural dialog and will send the link. Even in Canada we feel the pressure of the American worldview that creeps into everything originating from the US. It’s an unfortunate barrier.

I’ve worked with teachers and found it frustrating as there was the background of having invested in training that made them resistant. It’s also a bit rude to step into someone’s ongoing practice and announce “improvements to your performance are available.” Being adult learners too makes things even harder. Some teachers I know that are literally only a year out of their BEd were never exposed to online or open teaching. Their training almost seems from an ancient era.

Great posting.
