Commonwealth Online Learning Institute (CLOI) announced the launch of a new professional development training course for educators interested in learning how to engage students to ask more questions in the classroom.

With recent studies showing that teaching that involves questioning is more effective than teaching without questioning, it is important for educators to encourage students to ask more and better questions in the classroom. When students are able to ask their own questions, they can chase their curiosity and tap into their own interests, as well as build on their prior knowledge.

In addition, research has showed that questions allowing students to concentrate their attention on significant elements of a lesson will have better comprehension than the students that focus only on rare or interesting elements.

Commonwealth Online Learning Institute works with other experts in the field to develop and facilitate courses in the online environment that help teachers learn effective questioning methods and implement them in their classroom.

The Institute’s unique course, Developing Comprehension with the State Standards, contains excellent resources including classroom activities that provide a welcome change of pace for students who are tired of the traditional answering of questions when reading is completed.

CLOI offers convenient, 24/7 access to job-embedded courses. With the recent announcement, the organization aims to create learning opportunities that meet the needs of every teacher, school and district.

A satisfied participant said: “I am learning about skills that are foundational for my students. This information will help me to better support them, so it is very important to me that I truly understand what I am learning. The course is well-structured for that. The materials and assignments challenge me to ensure that I am practicing the skills and processing them deeply. I feel that I am gaining valuable insights.”
