Faculty Seminar Series on Teaching & Learning
Theme: Great Teachers …. Know what and how well their student have learned
We are pleased to be meeting in person again! Come join a dynamic learning community by participating in this specially designed workshop series for all faculty (across all disciplines and rank). We’ll share strategies and best practices from research-based pedagogy. Great conversations and handouts provided.
Session 2: Identifying and Implementing Questioning Strategies to Enhance Learning
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.
*This workshop counts towards completion of any of CITL's Teaching Certificates. To learn more about our Teaching Certificate program please visit https://go.illinois.edu/teaching_certificates.
