Kath Murdoch 3-Part Learning Series
We are excited to be welcoming Kath Murdoch back to our online NOIIE Zoom stage as last years workshop was a sold out success! This year we will be offering a three part series with Kath, in which she will be introducing us to many of the ideas included in her forthcoming book due to come out before the end of 2021. The focus of this new book is on personal inquiry: how to work with children’s personal passions, interests and questions. While Kath’s focus is primarily on K-8, we know that her ideas cross all grades and ages.

2021 ICSEI Conference
The Networks recently had the opportunity to deliver three presentations at the 2021 ICSEI Conference. The NOIIE Transitions Study was showcased through a collaborative presentation which highlighted the work of several Transition school teams. A portion of this presentation is captured through videos, shared by Valleyview Secondary School in Kamloops and the Nechako Lakes School District. These videos are also posted on our NOIIE Resources page, under Indigenous Inquiry & Transitions. Network teams from the Yukon, BC (Richmond & Delta) and Sweden participated in a Symposium session, with all contributing a paper describing their work which will later be submitted to the TEL Journal. And finally, seven Network representatives from across the globe presented a variety of images capturing stories about what it means to be a part of the Network. This particular session was simultaneously captured in art form, with gratitude to Network Leader and artist Jody Billingsley from the Delta School District. Jody’s beautiful artwork capturing the key themes of this presentation is found here. Thank you to all Network members who brought their stories to the international stage!

We have been fans of the work of Kath Murdoch for years. Linda has been known to say that you can open up her book, The Power of Inquiry, at any page and find a gem. We participated in the NOIIE Queensland symposium last August and had a chance to see Kath work on Zoom with the hundred educators in the room as well as many participating remotely. We are very pleased that Kath has agreed to share her insights and strategies about student inquiry with all of NOIIE on January 18th via Zoom.
