#40 How to Not Ask a Dumb Question with Dr. Heather Frederick
Show Notes

Asking questions in a way that makes you look smart isn't rocket science.

Two steps:
1.  Spend time looking for the answer (even just 10 minutes).
2. If you can't find it, articulate it in a way that shows you are an intelligent, tenacious, and detail-oriented person (qualities we expect to see in a doc student). 

Bonus Tips: 

  • When possible, frame it as a yes/no question
  • Use a spell/grammar checker

You are in a program grooming you to be an independent scholar and demands you know how to think.  You have a brain. For goodness sake, use it :)
