When instructors are the only ones asking questions, students miss out on important opportunities to deepen their learning and reflect on their understanding. Instructors and instructional designers must create an environment where learners create, organize, refine, and answer their own questions. They must help learners develop a robust “questioning toolkit” (McKenzie, 1997) and allow them to take greater ownership of their learning, deepen comprehension, and make new connections and discoveries on their own (Rothstein & Santana, 2011)
