As educators we spend a great deal of time asking questions of our students. We use questions to engage students, facilitate growth and sustain a vibrant learning environment. And yet, many educators have never received any formal instruction on how to ask questions. When pressed, many identify the source of their questions as wisdom, intuition or theory.
• What types of questions do you generally ask your students?
• Do you have an objective or method in mind when you ask a question?
• What informs your questions when attempting to turn a Whiskey-Tango-Foxtrot student experience into a teachable moment?
• Do questions you ask reappear in students’ clinical work with patients?
• Do you find yourself asking cognitive questions and assessing responses in the affective realm?
This webinar invites participants to consider how a methodological design of cognitive and affective questions enhances interventions and assists students in achieving their learning outcomes.
The objectives of this webinar are:
To summarize the influence of Socratic questioning in clinical practice
To analyze CPE interview and verbatim questions
To review the instructional design of Bloom and Krathwahl, Martin and Reigeluth
To examine a methodology of teaching for CPE based on the work of Mary Elizabeth Mullino Moore
To design questions relevant to CPE inquiry-based learning
