ABOUT CRAFTING INQUIRY
Crafting Inquiry is the Spear Center’s annual flagship conference, and it celebrates all aspects of inquiry-based teaching and learning. Each year the sessions and presenters offer a different perspective into the multi-faceted, exciting, and challenging world of inquiry-based education. We seek to bring together innovative and creative educational leaders from across the country and around the world to provide a unique and collaborative professional learning experience for our participants.
The first Crafting Inquiry conference was scheduled for the fall of 2020. Due to the COVID-19 shutdown, having an in-person conference was not possible, but we held the event completely virtually in the fall of 2020. Kath Murdoch, Stephanie Harvey, and Kimberly Mitchell joined us from around the world to share their insights into inquiry-based learning.
In October of 2022 we were thrilled to return to in-person professional learning with Crafting Inquiry 2022 as our kick-off. It was held at the beautiful Portland Art Museum in Portland, Oregon and featured Kath Murdoch, Trevor MacKenzie, Stephanie Harvey and Kimberly Mitchell.

We are back in 2023! We’ll see you in Portland on October 13 and 14. Check out the Information and Registration page for all of the details. Registration opens on August 4.
