On this week's programme I bring you the second part of my interview with Professor Kathy Short from the College of Education at the University of Arizona. In this programme she talks about how she became interested in inquiry-based learning, the Worlds of Words initiative she established and about being on the award committee for the Caldecott Medal. She was in Ireland to address the Symposium on Inquiry Based Learning organised by the Marino Institute of Education to mark the launch of a new masters degree in inquiry-based learning being offered in the Marino Institute of Education.
