Some definitions of pedagogy:

'The manner in which the teaching and learning processes and settings in a course is organised and implemented by the instructor' (Collis and Moonen 2002, p.224). .

'The processes, experiences, contexts, outcomes and relationships of teaching and learning in higher education', (RAE 2006) cited in Beetham and Sharpe (2007).

Enquiry-Based Learning (EBL)
This is a handbook by Peter Kahn and Karen O’Rourke, University of Manchester

In general, EBL is what we are doing here.
"The tutor establishes the task and supports or facilitates the process, but the students pursue their own lines of enquiry, draw on their existing knowledge and identify the consequent learning needs. They seek evidence to support their ideas and take responsibility for analysing and presenting this appropriately, either as part of a group or as an individual supported by others. They are thus engaged as partners in the learning process" (Kahn, O'Rourke, p 1)

This one also sounds like an interesting one according to the abstract but somehow I can't seem to get the full text

This article analyses the failure of constructivist, discovery, problem- based and inquiry- based teaching, it deals with scaffolding strategy, what should be taken into concideration when learners are exposed to novel information

I came across a couple of articles whilst researching EBL which were based around problem based learning (PBL) - which is an area associated with EBL.

The first article explains what PBL is and discusses its advantages and disadvantages.It is slightly biased towards medical training but all the principles are relevant to all disciplines. I believe that PBL was first introduced by the medical fraternity for medical students.

The second looks at PBL in language instruction:
