(PGT) Critical Thinking and the Art of Asking Questions
- Thursday 2nd May 2019 @ 13:10-16:00
Jonas Salk, the scientist whose team discovered one of the first successful polio vaccines, once said: “What people think of as the moment of discovery is really the discovery of the question.” We ask questions constantly to learn about the people and the world around us. We also ask questions in the initial stages of our research. Yet where do we learn our questioning skills?
This highly engaging session will focus on deconstructing and reconstructing the way you think about asking questions with the ultimate aim of being able to approach your research in a whole new way including revisiting your question.
The format of this session includes video clips, tutor input, pairs and group exercises, and an infographic to help you take your research topic and hypothesis and craft your research question using principles of design thinking, urban design, investigative reporting, and academic research.
By the end of the session, you will
- Understand the optimum questioning mindset
- Have learned the Seven Deadly Sins of Questions
- Discovered the secret to creating compelling question sequences
- Thought about your research question in a whole new way
