The Gentle Art of Questioning: Writing Great Clicker Questions 

written by Dr. Stephanie Chasteen

Presented by Stephanie Chasteen, University of Colorado-Boulder, at the 2012 PhysTEC Conference. This workshop focused on writing questions that engage students, spark their curiosity, help recap material, give you insight into their thinking, or help them learn critical ideas in physics.  Focuses on "peer instruction" -- a research-tested method of requiring students to discuss challenging questions with one another. Dr. Chasteen's materials from this workshop are also available on her blog.
