Session 3: Identifying and Implementing Effective Questioning Strategies
You include questions in your teaching as an opportunity for students to demonstrate their knowledge. But ….
- Have you ever asked a question and you’re met with silence?
- Or do the same students always eagerly raise their hands to answer?
- Or perhaps students don’t know how to answer questions requiring higher level thinking?
We all know the importance of incorporating questions in our teaching. Questions serve to motivate students, to assess students’ understanding, and to engage them in a thought-provoking discussion. Effective questioning skills require us to plan carefully not only the type of questions, but also the timing and sequencing. Come join this session to learn about not only on how to create an effective question, but also how to encourage students to participate.
