Martinho, Mariana; Almeida, Patrícia Albergaria; Teixeira-Dias, José
Bulgarian Comparative Education Society, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Bulgarian Comparative Education Society (10th, Kyustendil, Bulgaria, Jun 12-15, 2012)
This paper refers to an ongoing PhD research (2011-2014) aimed at contributing to a better understanding of student questioning in the teaching, learning and assessment processes in higher education (HE), focusing on gender. The research is being conducted with first year chemistry students at the University of Aveiro in Portugal, and is intended to conceive and implement a number of strategies that promote student questioning in the different environments provided by the subject, such as classes and online interactions. The purpose of this particular paper is to bring clarity to significant literature published on the subject and to deepen our understanding of it, to be henceforward more capable of placing our original work in the context of existing literature.
