Mapping your research ideas

Ask questions about your topic

The Question Formulation Technique, or QFT, can be used to develop questions about a topic. Using this method to develop questions allows great depth of contemplation for a topic.

QFT helps you produce, improve, and prioritize questions, through sharing and reflecting.

QFT  was developed by The Right Question Institute (RQI)
