Better Questions are the Answer

Better Questions are the Answer | Contemporary Learning Design | Scoop.it
Good answers depend on good questions. That’s why we work so hard on the content of our questions and why we should work with students on how they ask their questions. What also helps to make questions good is asking the right type of question. It goes to intent—what we want in the way of an answer. The type of question we ask conveys this intent to the listener.

Exploring Online Discussions - Raw research notes and article annotations

Abstract (pasted from AERA 2013 program)

This study investigated relationships between how students “listen” (access existing posts) and “speak” (contribute posts) in asynchronous online discussions. Eleven variables indexing four dimensions of student’s listening (breadth, depth, temporal contiguity and revisitation) and five variables indexing three dimensions of students’ speaking (discursiveness, depth of content, and reflectivity) were calculated for 31 students participating in six week-long online discussions as part of an undergraduate educational psychology course. Multiple regression analysis indicated that the breadth of students’ listening (the percentage of peers’ posts viewed) predicted both the responsiveness and argumentative quality of their posts, but the depth with which they attended to the posts (time spent viewing) did not. Implications for the theory and practice of online discussions are discussed.
