How important is the ability to formulate a good question for thinking, learning, researching, and problem-solving? Richard Feynman, the Nobel-prize winning physicist, said simply, “all learning must begin with the posing of a question.” Edward Witten of the Institute of Advanced Studies says that it is so important that he spends his days trying to find “the right questions to ask.” During this webinar Luz Santana and Andrew P. Minigan (The Right Question Institute) will teach you how to use the Question Formulation Technique, a simple yet powerful strategy that researchers can use to formulate better, more transformative research questions and that faculty can use to teach students how to develop their question formulation skills. Participants will also learn about preliminary findings on National Science Foundation funded research investigating how this strategy supports doctoral students’ research.
In 2019 we will be hosting an NSF-funded summer conference in Boston. Please register for free on the Right Question Network and you will be the first to learn more details about this special opportunity. Contact Andrew Minigan for more information or be on the lookout for an email newsletter this January.
