Dog Bite Reflections--Socratic Questioning Revisited
Toledo, Cheri A.
International Journal of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, v27 n2 p275-279 2015
In the online environment, the asynchronous discussion is an important tool for creating community, developing critical thinking skills, and checking for understanding. As students learn how to use Socratic questions for effective interactions, the discussion boards can become the most exciting part of the course. This sequel to the article "Does Your Dog Bite? Creating Good Questions for Online Discussions," applies sound communication principles and the prior question of trust to show online instructors how to phrase probing questions to increase comfort for learners' use. Based on the questions from the original "Does Your Dog Bite?" article, a variety of prompts are provided for asking probing questions in a non-threatening way.
