The Power of Questioning

As a child our mind was filled with questions. But even as an adult we need to continue to seek out both the answerable and unanswerable. This mentality helps us to push forward our own scientific research but also enables students to widen their view and get into a joint reflection and fruitful discussion.
Whether you act as an educator or as a facilitator this seminar should give you the insights and concrete tips for the bright variety of options you have “to ask the right question at the right time”. Therefore, we will have a look at the following points:

  • Creating a culture of learning
  • Questioning skills: closed and open questions
  • Questions for several situations: Opening a session, enabling action and thinking critically
  • Guidelines for asking with Sensitivity and Respect

At the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • apply the different questioning techniques
  • make their lessons more communicative and varied.
  • ensure the long-term transfer and application of what students have learned.

Short presentations, individual and group exercises, practice of typical question examples through case studies
