Education focuses more on pursuing the process of collective knowledge instead of developing individual knowledge with the education reform. Teacher questioning is regarded as a key to lead students talk and facilitate them to express them in interactive engagement to inquiry knowledge. This study explores how pre-service teachers design questioning in an online knowledge-building environment and implement these constructed questions to practical teaching. The participants are 47 students who are enrolled in the teacher education in Taiwan. A mixed method is adopted to comprehensively understand the design development of pre-service teachers' questioning and the effect of cognitive engagement of teachers' questions on primary school students. The content analysis is used to understand the changing types of teachers' questioning and the contingency table is for analyzing the changes in the number of questions asked during pre-posttest. The results indicate that (a) pre-service teachers diminish the quantity of convergent questions, while increasing the quantity of divergent questions subsequent to receiving ideas and peer feedback in the Knowledge Forum and (b) it is found that the average of asking questions by elementary students in the classroom is the lowest value. We suggest that teacher professional development in Taiwan should focus more on training educators to asking effective questions in order to improve the quality of teaching and learning.
