Today I will explain how to use facilitation questions to guide your learners thru your on-line training.
A great chunk of Author skills resides in the ability to ask good questions. They need to be well versed and timed. Effective design and good questions enable training engagement. They build an understanding of the subject and cultivate common responsibility for goals and results of the learning process.
Here at Consilia, we divided them into 3 categories:
- Subject-oriented questions – relate directly to why learners are here about your training’s subject and purpose.
- Results-oriented questions – they will get your learners to review and consider the results they are creating or have already created.
- Process-oriented questions – they will get your learners to review and consider different ways of performing a given activity.
- Type 1:
What challenges might along the way?
What are our goals?
What are the core activities?
- Type 2:
Can you be more specific?
What can support your approach?
What characterizes the answers we have come up with?
- Type 3:
What have you learnt so far?
How you are feeling about this wat of doing this task?
Why performing this exercise this way is important?
I can add many examples you need to tailor them to your subject of expertise.
