The Humble Question Prompt

I thought that the idea of the humble question prompt was rather like an extension of a traditional reference interview, but with more pedagogical bite. Since the purpose of the methodology is to generate critical thinking on the part of the student, I don't fully agree with the "question" moniker; I would probably refer to it as the humble dialog/discourse prompt. 

Nevertheless, using this method to generate thought, making, and thought about making supports the idea of knowledge creation as a holistic concept, encompassing intellectual, physical, emotional, inter-and intra-personal learning, as well as the effect learning has on its creator and the surrounding environments and willing or unwilling constituents and stakeholders.
