The Big Question:

Are you questioning enough?

Reasons for attending this programme:
As you know the art of questioning is at the heart of learning: teaching, assessing, differentiating, coaching, motivating, developing thinking skills and creating critical thinkers – effective questions are key to these and more!

Appropriate questions, asked skilfully, contribute to significant improvements in learning. Limited questioning leads to limited understanding. Superficial questioning leads to superficial understanding.

What is this training about?
Questioning is the essence of effective teaching because of the numerous purposes it serves: motivating learners, assessing knowledge and skills, and reviewing content. Questioning is the heart and soul of learning. It is the most widely used instructional strategy to facilitate learning.
Thinking is driven by questions, not answers, and learning is driven by thinking.
This event will give participants an opportunity to investigate the principles of effective questioning and the links between questioning, thinking and learning.

During this programme you learn:

  • How to develop the art of questioning
  • To link questioning to creativity and critical thinking
  • How questioning skills are used for different learning outcomes
  • How to promote questioning skills in others
  • How to use questions to drive up levels of learning
  • Effective questioning can unlock motivation


  • Confidence in your ability to ask powerful questions

    Jos Frederiks NLP Trainer

  • This course has been worth every penny. Fast doesn’t mean lacking in quality. The sheer tonnage of information is astonishing. It’s so worth it. You will learn a lot even if you are a very experienced teacher and you will enjoy it
    Dr Sharon Ney

  • It doesn’t matter how experience you are, go for it. The training was the most magic. Teaching must go over to learning and we in school have to take responsibility for that. I will use this in my work as a consultant helping schools to improve. Many many thanks for a great course.
    Anita Svennson,Swedish Educational consultant

  • I thought I knew how to design a course. After attending this training it’s totally changed my view about learning design. If you are a teacher this course is mandatory for your career.

  • I may wobble but I move forward with a giggle into all that is possible. The course has accelerated my own slow and steady learning into the amazing and continued possibility of learning

  • This was loads of fun and I loved it. Fun and interactive ways of learning and how to apply that to teaching. Some may think that its only for teachers but we are all teachers in different areas. This course totally surpassed my expectations and all my goals were achieved. Creative teaching makes you want to teach. I highly recommend it so that more good teachers equal more confident kids. Just do it!
