Effective Questioning Strategies
Questioning Techniques Questioning is one of the most important dimensions of teaching and learning. It gives tutors the chance to find out what students know and understand, and it allows students to seek clarification and help. There are many types of questions. One dichotomy is the closed vs. open question types. Another way of understanding question types is in terms of lower vs. higher order questions. Some tutors plan key questions ahead of time.
