In a plenary talk "Investigative Science Learning Environment (ISLE): helping students learn physics by practicing it and be empowered in the process"at the SEA-STEM 2020 conference I (Eugenia Etkina) described the ISLE approach to learning and teaching physics, shared examples of activities and presented evidence of student learning. In this paper I, with my collaborators David T. Brookes and Gorazd Planinsic will briefly summarize my presentation and provide a list of resources for those who wish to learn more about the ISLE approach and to implement it in their physics courses.
