This inquiry-based unit of work was created, trialled and peer reviewed as part of a professional learning program in inquiry-based learning for school teachers. The professional learning courses were part of a pilot partnership between the NSW Government’s Sydney Metro transport agency and Western Sydney University. Facilitated by Western Sydney University’s Education Knowledge Network, the professional development program aimed to develop teacher expertise in inquiry-based learning using a real-life example of a major infrastructure project in delivery stage.
