This case study documents a collaborative process of designing a physics course across the academic cultures of science and education. It presents a model for how scientific inquiry might be integrated into an undergraduate physics course for non-majors and preservice K–8 teachers. Tools for managing and assessing guided and open inquiry are provided together with samples of student work. Evidence of student learning is investigated, with a focus on assessing students' ability to write a testable scientific question. The paper is organized in five sections: the context and resources for designing the physics course; the collaborators; the course; tools for managing and assessing inquiry; evidence of student learning; and references.
