Advantages and Disadvantages of Inquiry Based Learning Strategy

Advantages and Disadvantages of Inquiry Based Learning Strategy
Alberta (2004: 3) a systematic approach to the development of these skills is essential to prepare students for problem solving and lifelong learning.  A systematic approach ensures that students have the opportunity to engage in inquiry, to learn an overall process and to understand that this general inquiry process can be transferred to other inquiry situations. Inquiry-based learning provides opportunities for students to:
1)      Develop skills they will need all their lives
2)      Learn to cope with problems that may not have clear solutions
3)      Deal with changes and challenges to understandings
4)      Shape their search for solutions, now and in the future.
Wood (2010: 33) Students from this course felt that a more structured inquiry task had the following benefits:
1)      All of the students know what they are supposed to be doing, so they can start quicker.
2)      Students might not come up with a question that was as challenging as the staff member, and therefore the project would not have been as interesting; students know they are going to learn ‘something’, either about the topic or about how they work.
3)      If students have a question, it is more specific, there is less ambiguity about what you need to be studying.
However the the negative side or disadvantages of using Inquiry based learning stratgy as follows
1)      students might not like the question they have been given or the group they are assigned to. 
2)      Students can explore the task more and get to use all of their abilities, ‘so it probably works out better, but it would take more time.’
3)      Because there is more discussion and communication in the team, you have to show the skills more finely.
