As instructors, how do we create an environment in which students can discover and learn physics for themselves - to own it, so to speak?

—Investigative Science Learning Environment (ISLE), a Science Process Approach that addresses this question. This approach involves students’ development of their own ideas by

The combination of these features is applied to every conceptual unit in the ISLE learning system, thus helping them develop productive representations for qualitative reasoning and for problem solving.
