10 Questions 

Contributor: Sandra Sinfield @Danceswithcloud

Idea: When first meeting a class – rather than outlining the what, why and how of the course – get students into groups: first in their small groups – and then via negotiation between groups – they have to come up with TEN key questions to ask you. This gets students speaking with each other straight away – helps them set the agenda for their learning – and illustrates that learning is active not passive – and dialogic not presentational.

Practitioner comments: When we did this the students came up with amazing questions – they remembered the answers (!) – and in a blog after we saw written: I didn’t know there were so many questions!
