Community Inquiry Lab Builder

The Community Inquiry Lab Builder provides a way to create a web site for a class, group, project, or community. It includes Inquiry Page tools, such as Inquiry Units, and a Document Center for group writing projects.

A Community Inquiry Laboratory (CIL) is a place where members of a community come together to develop shared capacity and work on common problems. Community emphasizes support for collaborative activity and for creating knowledge that is connected to people’s values, history, and lived experiences. Inquiry points to support for open-ended, democratic, participatory engagement. Laboratory indicates a space and resources to bring theory and action together in an experimental and critical manner. A CIL is most importantly a concept, not a technology in the narrow sense, but it may be supported through a website and other tools for communication.
