Teachers and students' dispositions have a major influence towards the introduction of inquiry-based learning (IBL). In this study we present analysis of pre professional development interview data from teachers (n = 16) and student focus groups (n = 96) as part of a larger project to promote IBL in Qatari middle school mathematics and science classrooms. Teacher and student responses suggested contrasting perspectives related to stress factors and goal orientations. Implications of the findings suggest the need to consider teacher and student subjectivities in transforming teaching practice.
