Some notes included after each question, including if it was a librarian written question, any clarification on the topic or population cards used, if it was their own question not developed using the cards, and if there were any "votes" (called "stars" here).
There are many free online gaming options (slot machines, airport lounge, name wheels, etc.) that could work for an activity like this. Jamie has used a random name wheel successfully. After creating two wheels, students spin each one for randomly assigned subjects and populations to create research questions with. You can take it a step further and have them add their questions to a shared online white board or bulletin board. The psychology example linked below shows this adaptation.
Sample "Spin the Wheel" Activity variation below (embedded wheel spinning with topic options).

Salt Lake Community College is located on the Native American shared territory of the Goshute, Navajo, Paiute, Shoshone, and Ute People. We honor the original ancestors of this land and also offer respect to our other tribal communities. We acknowledge this history to cultivate respect for and advocate with our Indigenous students and communities still connected to this land.
ACRL acknowledges that in Pittsburgh we are on Indigenous land that was stolen from the Iroquois (a.k.a., Haudenosaunee, represented by the Seneca), as well as the Shawnee and Delaware (also called the Leni Lenape) peoples. We pay respect to their Elders and their past, present, and future peoples, cultures, languages, and communities.
