Luz Santana, Co-Director of RQI, will be presenting a 1.5-hour session at the NCTN Conference
The ability to formulate question is a foundational skill for students, citizens and workers, especially in the digital age. Knowing how to ask good questions is key for learning, system navigation, and self-advocacy. In this active working session, participants will explore a common problem in education at all levels: students are not asking questions.
This session will offer participants an opportunity to experience the QFT process, reflect on the importance of the skill of question formulation, examine the art and science behind the QFT, and explore applications of the process in the classroom and in civic life. The session is designed to be an active working session, in which participants will be engaged in hands-on learning activities, group work, and discussions. We will be sharing templates of the QFT process, but participants will also have access to all the free resources we make available on our website. Participants will leave the session with a strategy they can implement the next day in their work with students, share with colleagues, and use for themselves in various settings.
