I enjoyed the discussion and presentation yesterday.  One item that did not come up was a timeline.  Some inquiry projects take a year, or more,  masters projects or theses are examples.  Some inquiry projects are of course much shorter, the legal briefs students  examined were discussed over a few hours.  Same cycle, different timeline.
