Description / Descripción

With the advent of the 21st Century, scholars, politicians, scientists, educators, entrepreneurs, religious leaders, and parents have looked at the increasing rapidity of change and complexity in the world, and wondered what capabilities are necessary to embrace the challenges facing us. The P21 Partnership cites four basic “C” skills: creativity and innovation; critical thinking and problem-solving; communication; and, collaboration. However, developing the “4 Cs” relies on another attribute – curiosity, the hallmark of which is the ability to formulate good questions. This workshop proposes to engage participants in a lively exercise of asking questions. A brief introduction reviews various question type taxonomies, and looks at strategies for stimulating the question generation. Participants will then choose an issue from among the Conference themes and work in small, diverse groups to generate questions aimed at initiating creative proposals. A comparison of the sets of questions created by each group rounds out the workshop.
