There are many reasons we ask questions. As teachers we ask questions to pique interest, review prior knowledge and check understanding, yet research has shown teachers ask over 95% of questions in the classroom suggesting that, although full of questions, classrooms often lack student-based enquiry.
Encounter Live expert interviews and Q&A sessions provide a unique opportunity for students to indulge their curiosity and pick the brains of experts on a whole range of subjects. This can then give rise to discovery and learning you don’t come across every day.
To really get the most out of these Encounter Live sessions, we have created a guide to support you and your students in selecting and developing higher order questions, which spark engaging and informative discussions and encourage critical reflection.
