In this episode we spend just a little more focused time unpacking the Question Formulation technique, exploring why it's useful. As you’ll hear Luz say in the episode, QFT “offers a little more joy in a demanding profession” and she quotes journalist Clive Thompson when he says “How should you respond when you get powerful new tools for finding answers? Think of harder questions”.

The Harvard Education publishing group says….

[The] Right Question Institute have developed [a technique] called the Question Formulation Technique (QFT). This technique helps students learn how to produce their own questions, improve them, and strategize on how to use them. In the classroom, teachers have seen how the same process manages to develop students’ divergent (brainstorming), convergent (categorizing and prioritizing), and metacognitive (reflective) thinking abilities in a very short period of time.
