Questionner ou faire questionner ?

Signalé par Florence MEICHEL, ce billet dont je retiens cette phrase :

Teaching is about providing good information. Anti-teaching is about inspiring good questions. Since all good thinking begins with a good question, it struck me that if we are ultimately trying to create “active lifelong learners” with “critical thinking skills” and an ability to “think outside the box” it might be best to start by getting students to ask better questions. Unfortunately, I didn’t know where to start. I have read and heard a great deal of advice on how to ask good questions of students – non-rhetorical, open-ended, etc. – but nobody has ever told me anything about how to get students to ask good questions.

Ce paragraphe me renvoie à mes propres interrogations à propos de la motivation.

Toutes ces réflexions me ramènent à mes recherches sur l'Enquiry Based Learning.
