These workshops are sponsored by BHP Foundation in support of the BHP Foundation Science and Engineering Awards and supported by the Science Teachers' Association of Queensland (STAQ).

Open inquiry has long been identified as a useful pedagogical strategy for developing students’ knowledge of science, understandings about science, skills for thinking and working scientifically, and dispositions towards science (see for example Tytler, 2007). It may also be taken as an approach to the teaching and learning of technology and mathematics. Open inquiry requires teachers to hold strong planning and facilitation skills, as well as a good knowledge of the nature of the relevant discipline.

Each workshop will enable teachers to identify their strengths for open inquiry and provide opportunities to further their understandings and skills through CSIRO Education and Outreach's Awards programs.

Certificates outlining the AITSL Professional Standards for Teachers developed, practised, and applied during the program will be provided following the workshop.

Central questions that will drive the professional learning include:
