Junior Faculty Seminar Series on Teaching & Learning
Come join this learning community by participating in this specially designed seminar series for junior faculty, though all are welcomed to participate. We'll share strategies and best practices for effective and efficient teaching. There will be great conversations, handouts, and lunch! Since each session builds on each other, we hope you will be able to attend all the meetings.
Session 3: Effective Questioning Skills
Wednesday, Oct.3, 2018
11:30 – 1:00
Room 428, Armory Building
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 including 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 how to create an effective question, but also how to encourage students to participate.
This workshop counts towards the Graduate Teacher Certificate, the Teacher Scholar Certificate or the Certificate in Foundations of Teaching.
