The goal of this session is to encourage instructors to ask questions that promote learnersí thinking beyond the level of recall of information and that allow learners to adequately process information and respond to the instructorsí requests.

Description:
Are you frustrated at not getting the right answers from your students? Maybe it's because you're not asking the right questions! This course offers questioning strategies that foster higher-order thinking skills while developing responses beyond the level of recall. Help students connect the dots as they process new information to answer questions designed with a purpose.
