The Art of Asking Questions

How do you debrief activities, promote dialogue, and prompt critical thinking as an educator or facilitator? This session explores the different kinds of questions we can ask and ways to engage participants in inquiry-based activities that spark creativity, hypothesizing, and reflection. Deepen the discussion at your meetings or in your classes, workshops, and trainings by practicing the art of asking questions.
