In a Quescussion, learners must engage with an idea using only questions. The instructor starts the discussion with an open-ended question. Participants then respond with ONLY open-ended questions (if someone makes a statement, the whole class shouts “Statement!”). Ideally, every student/learner should contribute, and the questions may be recorded.
