What if intelligence has more to do with being able to ask the right questions and find the right problems than with being able to find the right solution?

Creating a classroom atmosphere in which students learn to use ceaseless questions is the key to helping them become independent and lifelong learners.

In this 1-hour course, Joyce Juntune, Ph.D., will teach you to use person-focus questions to:

  • Give students depth of insight
  • Build the habit of curiosity
  • Challenge students to engage their senses and change perspectives
