Asking questions during class can promote student engagement, foster reflection, and serve as real-time feedback to both students and instructors about where students are at in their learning. However, not all questions are created equally, and not all questioning strategies are effective. This workshop for graduate students and postdocs will explore varied question types that instructors might pose, as well as strategies for sequencing questions so that they best support and encourage student learning. This workshop will also provide strategies for responding effectively to student answers.
This workshop will take place via Zoom. A link to the Zoom session will be sent out with the reminder email the day before the workshop. If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Shaina Rowell, Assistant Director, The Center for Teaching and Learning.
