Andrew Minigan

The Right Question Institute
Director of Strategy
Andrew P. Minigan is the Right Question Institute’s (RQI) Director of Strategy for the Education Program. As a part of Andrew’s work with RQI he is a Co-P.I. on a National Science Foundation funded research grant to develop a strategy so doctoral students and early career researchers can learn how to formulate better, more transformative research questions.

He also led the John Templeton Foundation funded Million Classrooms Campaign. Through the work of the campaign and by learning with educators in the field, he has helped to scale up a pedagogical innovation on a global level. Now, students across all grade levels around the world are improving their own question formulation skills with a simple yet powerful strategy. In addition to scaling for impact, his work explores question formulation and its connection to curiosity and Andrew has written on these topics for Social Education, Educational Leadership, Education Week, and PBS.

Andrew conferred an Ed.M. in Human Development & Psychology from the Harvard Graduate School of Education and graduated summa cum laude with a B.A. in Psychology from the University of New Hampshire. He is currently a doctoral student at the Northeastern University Graduate School of Education.
