What is that professor looking for! Why so many questions?
« on: August 29, 2013, 11:33:33 am »
Have you asked yourself this question when reading feedback in the discussion area or gradebook?  Does it seem like those professors are never happy and always have more questions to ask?  Well you are right, we do!

One of the jobs of your instructors is to get you to understand the material, and often this is achieved by asking questions to get you to think about information in a different way.  Even when you are applying the concepts correctly those questions will keep coming.  Why you ask?  Because now they want you to dig deeper, think more critically or expand those thoughts.  Questions encourage students to ponder the ideas in a fun and positive way....so we will keep asking so you learn more!  Also remember that YOU can ask us questions too!  We love questions, so keep asking us when you don't understand something or you just want to learn more!
