Untapping the Power of Questions

Strengthening the Practice and Culture of Question Formulation in Higher Education

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.

September 17 and 24, 2021
12 – 4 pm EDT
