Abstract

This paper examines how parallel thinking approaches were used to support enquiry-based learning in small group teaching. These collaborative approaches enriched students’ understanding, of the learning process and enabled them to think laterally and identify alternative solutions to their research questions. A change of approach to the learning environment enhanced pedagogical innovations. Introducing role-play and gaming helped to remove learning barriers and encouraged peer interaction. The outcomes enabled the students to apply new thinking approaches to a range of creative challenges.
