“One interested teacher at a time”: Australian teacher librarian perspectives on collaboration and inquiry

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperConference paperpeer-review

Abstract

While engaged in previous studies on Guided Inquiry in Australia, it became evident to researchers that an important piece missing in this research is the relationship of the teachers and school librarians in collaborating and delivering inquiry units to students. This study sought to fill this gap using an online questionnaire and interviews with volunteering school librarian respondents and their collaboratingteachers. Preliminary findings reveal important elements to successful inquiry units, strategies to tackle inevitable challenges, and how to engage collaborators, “one interested teacher at a time” as one respondent notes.
