Conversation of the Week–What kinds of questions encourage student engagement?

Presentation date: January 26, 2015 and on demand for one week

Changing how you use questions requires a few simple tweaks to your approach and not a major overhaul of your teaching methods. Learn the subtle things you can do to make your questions more powerful and your classroom interactions with students more fruitful.

Learn How To:

  • Use open questions that allow students to connect with the course content in ways that are meaningful to them
  • Ask questions even when you don’t know the answer
  • Use time requests for student questions to get more thoughtful queries
