Workshop Contents:

Questioning play a crucial role in classroom. Teaching and questioning have been viewed as integrally related activities. As such, to be an effective teacher, one must be an effective questioner.

Research findings indicated that most of the questions asked by teachers in the classroom are strictly memory, calling for only a superficial understanding of the material or simply calling for the rapid recall of information. Learning different kinds of questions and the different functions they serve are the crucial steps in being able to use all types of questions to create the most effective learning environment to articulate higher order thinking. This workshop aims to increase your mastery of questioning skills by classifying classroom questions according to Bloom’s Taxonomy of Educational Objectives.

On completion of the workshop, participants would be able to:

  • identify the characteristics of an effective classroom question,
  • construct questions according to the cognitive domain of Bloom’s Taxonomy; and
  • explain the characteristics of effective classroom questioners.

Medium of Instruction:

Cantonese (supplemented by English)
