Workshop: Questions in the Classroom

Participants from the previous workshop with Steven said: 

Steven is the guru of questions. This workshop will definitely help you as a professor to better help your students by having a deep understanding on how to ask a great question and providing good answers. – Stefany Bolaños, profesor, FCE 

Steven is an outstanding human being and facilitator! The workshop is engaging, emotional, and really inspiring. If you think you know how to ask questions, this experience might change your mind. It felt like upgrading my IOS on asking questions. – Isa Moino, profesor, CoLab


How do we craft the questions that help our students learn?

This year, UFM is celebrating its 50 year anniversary! Our birthday campaign is centered around questions to spark curiosity and discovery, challenge the status quo, innovate, and inspire us to continuously listen and learn.

In this conversation with Professor Steven Tomlinson we’ll explore the following questions:

  • How do we find the question that prompts discovery without leading?
  • How do different kinds of questions work in the classroom?
  • How do yes/no and other challenging questions work?
  • When are open questions better?
