Some subscribers to Math-Teach might be interested in a discussion list post "Re: Developing research-based curricula in college-based higher education [Hake (2014)]. The abstract reads:


ABSTRACT: Alan Jenkins, in his POD post "Developing research-based curricula in college-based higher education" at <> uses the term "research-based curricula" to mean: (a) "curricula emphasizing research or inquiry BY students," NOT (b) "curricula shown to be effective in promoting higher-order learning by education research."

For a review of the latter see e.g.: (1) "Adapting to a Changing World - Challenges and Opportunities in Undergraduate Physics Education" [NRC (2013)] <>; and (2) "Teaching and physics education research: bridging the gap" [Fraser et al. (2014) <>.

For anti-inquiry arguments see "Why Minimal Guidance During Instruction Does Not Work: An Analysis of the Failure of Constructivist, Discovery, Problem-Based, Experiential, and Inquiry-Based Teaching" [Kirschner et al. (2006)] <> and counters by Hmelo-Silver et al. (2007) <>; Kuhn (2007) <>; Schmidt et al. (2007) <>; & Hake (2010) <>.
