  • Improves student questions that support deeper learning
  • Improves the skills and strategies students need beyond the classroom

Course Learning Goals

  • Understand the what, how, and why behind the QFT
  • Identify best practices for effective ways to design, facilitate, and adapt the QFT for specific purposes, including interdisciplinary and conceptual learning
