Asking questions is an essential skill for effective case teaching—good questions energize students and move the discussion forward, but poorly posed questions can sap a class’s energy and interfere with student learning.
Thinking about the purpose of asking questions and the different types of questions you ask in the classroom will help introduce variety into your teaching and make your case classes more effective, no matter the subject matter.
In this webinar, Greg Merkley of Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management will share his expertise on crafting engaging questions to improve student learning.

Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management
Manager of Case Writing
Greg works at Kellogg School of Management as manager of case writing. In that role he collaborates with Kellogg faculty to develop case studies that are used in courses at Kellogg and other business schools around the world.
A 1982 graduate of Kellogg, Greg spent thirty years in corporate and entrepreneurial settings before returning to his alma mater.
Prior to working at Kellog he consulted with global companies to help them implement successful strategies in Japan and Asia-Pacific, and taught MBA and undergraduate courses in strategy, marketing, and organization behavior at Concordia University.
He was also part of the leadership team at Verio, a Japanese-owned provider of web hosting services. Greg built a department that turned around the relationship between the company and its Japanese parent, NTT Communications, who was also its largest strategic partner and customer. He came to Verio from TravelCLICK, where he grew the company’s global ad platform during a period of intense new internet competition.
Greg also spent nearly a decade at United Airlines and Galileo International building the online reservations business in Asia-Pacific. The following decade was spent in an entrepreneurial venture that created discount hotel websites and online publications for the travel industry.
