Based on methods developed by the EU PARRISE project, we provided training for pre-service science teachers on asking authentic questions. The purpose of this small study was to see how realistic it was for these teachers to teach a whole Year 7 year group how to generate their own authentic questions about the importance of biodiversity, while carrying out fieldwork in a local forest. This talk presents the findings.
