The Advanced Inquiry Program (AIP), co-offered by Miami University's Project Dragonfly, Chicago Zoological Society-Brookfield Zoo and seven other U.S. zoos, is a groundbreaking graduate degree focused on inquiry-driven learning and social change.
Through work on the web and at the zoo, AIP master's students use inquiry not only as a tool for integrated learning but also as a powerful agent for student achievement, public engagement and ecological stewardship.
Since joining the master's program in 2011, Bragg has practiced the skills of investigation, critical reflection, leadership and collaboration required to effectively address the vital conservation issues of our time.
The deadline to apply to the next AIP master's cohort is Feb. 28, 2014. The courses, which count toward the AIP master's or can be taken for graduate credit, are designed for educators and other professionals from all disciplines and settings interested in making a difference in human and ecological communities.
Project Dragonfly reaches millions of people each year through inquiry-driven learning media, public exhibits and graduate programs worldwide. Dragonfly is based in the Department of Biology at Miami University, a state university in Oxford, Ohio. Miami was established in 1809 and is listed as one of the eight original Public Ivies.
