Choose Your Own Inquiry! is a narrative that captures the student experiences of Inquiry in the Bachelor of Health Sciences program at Mc Master University. Allowing the reader to determine their journey of lifelong learning experiences, this book describes the epiphanies and anxieties in the process and outcomes of acquiring kwledge. Unlike other works in the field, this narrative evolved entirely from a student perspective, envisioned by students and written by students. Unprecedented by combining a qualitative research methodology and candid prose, Choose Your Own Inquiry! provides a multi-faceted and authentic rendition of learning beyond the parameters of the higher educational institution. This book extensively examines the process of learning for university students, and the conditions that facilitate optimal uptake. In particular, the continuum of inquiring, reflecting, evaluating, and reconstructing information is explored amongst students with different learning curves, needs, and preferences. Choose Your Own Inquiry! explores an invative research approach in evaluating learning with a rich and most realistic context through in-depth interviews and written comments of students. Rather than speaking to other learners, our narrative serves as a forum where dialogue and decisions to understand more is made by the reader, as characteristic of the process of lifelong education.
