Students write questions

Students create and submit questions to the class about what they would like to know more about a topic.

For example:

  • about what they would like to know on a topic,
  • to ask the lecturer or other students in order to assess their learning,
  • or to demonstrate their learning, misconceptions, or areas they would like to further explore.

The class can work on these together in a session or use them to prepare for the next session. 

Why use it (students and staff)

Encourages reflection on learners’ gaps in their knowledge or understanding. 

 If students write questions for their peers to answer it can deepen their own understanding and that of peers.
