Asking Questions to Improve Learning (Danforth Campus)
Thursday, September 19th, 2019
11:30 AM - 1:00 PM
Introductory Level; Provides preparation for Mentored Teaching Experience and foundation in effective teaching strategies
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 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.
Facilitators: Dr. Julia Johnson, Assistant Director, Academic Services, The Teaching Center, and Dr. Meg Gregory, Assistant Director, Academic Services, The Teaching Center
