Courses: Asking Better Questions


Course Details:
This course has pre-requisites, please confirm that you have taken the required courses before registering for this class. Students who register without meeting these requirements will be withdrawn from the course. Basing negotiation or mediation on interests is greatly assisted by the conscious use of questions. This course is practice-oriented, focusing on the issues you raise in class. Questions can be facilitative, directive, accusatory, helpful or condemnatory. They evoke ideas, illuminate culture, encourage images and invite articulation. How do we make the question a tool of art in the hands of a principled asker? How can we use questions to ensure an honest, curious and through inquiry? Come prepared to ask and learn.
