NOIIE is a provincial inquiry-based network of districts in British Columbia. Established in 2000, NOIIE was designed to improve the quality and equity of education in BC through inquiry, teamwork across roles, schools and districts, as well as a focus on applying coaching forms of assessment to assist learners to take greater ownership of their learning. The vision of EVERY learner crossing the stage with dignity, purpose, and options is at the core of inquiries within the group. Schools participate on an annual basis by engaging in the Spiral of Inquiry. School questions, case studies, resources and reflections are shared in a spirit of generosity, curiosity and growth.
