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 <http://bit.ly/1goohbN> 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)] <http://bit.ly/126os6j>; and (2) "Teaching and physics education research: bridging the gap" [Fraser et al. (2014) <http://bit.ly/1qITBqi>.

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)] <http://bit.ly/duJVG4> and counters by Hmelo-Silver et al. (2007) <http://bit.ly/aKUD5s>; Kuhn (2007) <http://bit.ly/ekxUvD>; Schmidt et al. (2007) <http://bit.ly/9uwVc8>; & Hake (2010) <http://bit.ly/aGlkjm>.
