Combining Explanations, Activities, and “design method” Inquiry
Teachers can design eclectic instruction that creatively combines clear Explanations (using ideas from Ausubel), Activities (for application-and-extension), and Inquiry structured by a model of Integrated Design Method - developed based on my PhD work about Scientific Method - to help students learn scientific concepts, creative-and-critical thinking skills, and metacognitive learning strategies.

Problem Solving & Metacognition — Inquiry using Design Method
During problem-solving inquiry activities, Design Method can help students develop their creative-and-critical thinking skills. In a special type of design that is a problem-solving approach for personal education, students use metacognition to proactively take control of their own learning, to improve their ideas and skills.
