Sugatra Mitra suggested that good questions unlock learning. What are those questions in English language teaching? Who asks them? When? What answers and feedback do they provide? What questions are taught in course books – including Outcomes – and what might they reveal about principles behind them? What questions might teachers ask themselves to develop? In this webinar, Hugh Dellar and Andrew Walkley will answer these questions from their own perspectives and hope to raise a few more questions for teachers of English everywhere.
