About the Webinar

This webinar will provide senior leaders, headteachers and all teaching staff with an understanding of how effective questioning can be used in the classroom to enhance teaching and pupil attainment.

It is estimated that teachers ask about 300-400 questions per day, and as many as 120 questions per hour. Questioning is essential to determine learning needs and prompt pupils to think. However, traditional methods don’t necessarily achieve these two key objectives.

By adopting a strategic approach, teachers can make the most of questioning to support excellent learning and progress. With careful preparation, effective questioning can soon become second nature and via modelling, teachers can develop learner skills of enquiry and independence.

In this webinar, Stephen Burnage, a consultant, trainer and school leadership specialist with over 25 years’ teaching experience, explains how teachers can harness the power of questioning to engage all learners, and equips them will practical skills to facilitate assessment, encourage productive thinking and improve the attainment of the whole class.

Learning Outcomes

  • Acquiring the knowledge and practical skills to implement a questioning strategy which promotes retrieval practice and development of thinking by all pupils.

  • Developing and implementing a questioning strategy which assesses the understanding of all pupils to inform future lesson planning.

  • Understanding what is meant by effective questioning in helping teachers collect evidence of learning and encourage thinking.

  • Recognising the importance of creating an inclusive learning environment in which all pupils feel confident to respond.

  • Appreciating the flexibility afforded by remote learning for immediate and asynchronous, written and verbal responses.
