Proposal Title

"I Have A Question For You:" Lessons Learned from the Answers

Proposal Abstract

In their book Transformational Teaching (2011), Rosebrough and Leveritt suggested that one key to better student learning was the asking of good questions. Good questions lead students to insights about content and to students' creation of knowledge that is their own, and applicable to new situations. During the past academic year, I have taught four sections of one course - Motor Learning under the guiding question, "Can I do that?" I wanted to determine if I could develop enough questions, that would allow me to address course material, but would be probing and thought provoking, enabling students to achieve deeper levels of knowledge and understanding with the course material? This session is a report of that experience - the successes and failures, challenges and surprises. No IRB informed consents or student learning measures were attempted in this project. My challenge was to test myself and my ability to develop questions that could be woven into the curriculum. My "research" question was, "can it be done?" Please come and find out my answers, and contribute to new solutions and "next steps."
