To enhance the learning experience, this course has been designed to accommodate various learning styles by incorporating a mix of text, graphics, videos, and downloadable activities.

FOUNDATIONS OF APPRECIATIVE INQUIRY
In this opening module, we begin by introducing Appreciative Inquiry (AI) as a transformational change model that invites meaningful dialogue around our strengths and successes by using generative questions that inquire into the ideal. Next you will explore the power of storytelling, two approaches to human learning and change, and see how the practice and application of AI has evolved over time.

SUPPORTING RESEARCH & THEORIES OF APPRECIATIVE INQUIRY
In this module, we present scientific research, theories, and fields of study that support strength-based approaches to change, such as Appreciative Inquiry. Understanding the working theories and research that support Appreciative Inquiry and its impact on our beliefs, learning, and behavior help illustrate why Appreciative Inquiry is a powerful and energizing tool for creating and sustaining change.

PRINCIPLES OF APPRECIATIVE INQUIRY
What are the principles of Appreciative Inquiry and what purpose do they serve? In this module, you will learn about the original and emergent principles of AI through experiential activities and reflective questions that demonstrate how the principles influence your way of being, thinking, and doing in the world.

5-D APPRECIATIVE INQUIRY PROCESS
Appreciative Inquiry (AI) is a way of being and seeing; it is both a worldview and process for inviting and facilitating positive change. In this module, you will learn about the 5-D’s of Appreciative Inquiry – Define, Discover, Dream, Design, and Destiny – by experiencing the process first hand as they apply to designing and completing a personal appreciative visioning plan.

APPRECIATIVE INQUIRY IN ACTION
Appreciative Inquiry encourages individuals to adapt and alter the process to create a custom change experience appropriate to the needs, outcomes, timelines, and budgets of the individual, group, or organization. The invitation to create new and inclusive forms of engagement sparked the development of new programs and workshops built upon the AI methodology. In this module, we will present a variety of subjects to demonstrate Appreciative Inquiry’s scalability and versatility in its application.
