Here are some good ideas for encouraging student questions:
I've always found that when you want students to ask questions is that you give them time to think about the material. Don't rush through the lesson. Always have small breaks where they can process the information.
Always make sure the students feel like your are interested in hearing what they have to say or what they want to know. Make sure you create a "question friendly" environment. Also, when a question IS asked, make sure you praise each question. This will encourage other students to ask their own questions.
It helps to encourage the use of why, how, and how well questions.
