"Making Space for Questioning"

Join us for a full-day workshop where we practice, share, and develop strategies for active learning through questioning in our science classrooms. While giving you the opportunity to work with examples from your own and others’ university science teaching, we’ll explore how asking and answering questions can help our students build their confidence and independence, as well as develop a deeper understanding of science.
