VAEI’s Instructional Model
The VAEI Instructional model integrates a process of scientific inquiry with a rich learning environment while nurturing scientific habits of mind. By addressing the process and culture of scientific inquiry, the model becomes a practical guide for helping students think and act like scientists.
VAEI’s Instructional model provides a framework to support scientific inquiry. We use this model to help teachers transform any lesson into an inquiry-based learning experience.
VAEI’s sustained professional development supports implementation of inquiry-based learning from start to finish. Our professional development and instructional tools support a transformation of science instruction.
All VAEI sustained training workshops offer teachers:
Please note, all training workshops at VAEI include lunch and snacks for up to 40 participants as well as a visit to the model laboratory at Van Andel Institute.
