Working Conference: Untapping the Power of Questions

  • Organizer: PhD Network
  • Venue: Virtual

RSVP Event Website

How might higher education and research be improved by deliberately developing the ability to ask better questions?  The discrete skill of formulating questions is foundational for learning and research, yet, it is rarely taught to students and its importance is often overlooked. We invite you to participate in a pioneering conference in which we will explore the power of question formulation for learning and for fostering transformative research.

The conference is designed for faculty, administrators, graduate students, and postdocs in any STEM-M field who fall under one or more of these descriptions:

  • Individuals who want to deepen their understanding of the importance of question formulation for fostering transformative research
  • Individuals who would like to foster the skill of question formulation in order to improve learning in higher education
  • Individuals who would like to promote a culture of better question formulation in their programs, departments, institutions

Participants from the same program/department/institution are encouraged to attend as a team to work together.

Conference takes place during two half-days on Friday, September 17, 12 - 4 pm EDT AND Friday, September 24, 12 - 4 pm EDT

Registration is limited to 100 participants.

Apply by July 25 for priority consideration.
