Turn Mistakes into Powerful Tools for Teaching and Learning

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Picture students saying, “I can’t leave this mistake until I understand how to fix it!” Engage in learning how to help students embrace mistakes as growth opportunities. See how strategies like “Fix-It Friday”, “Five Minute Fix-its”, and “Mentor Madness” lead to stronger conceptual understanding, create safety that transforms discourse in teams, shift mindsets from fixed to growth, and change lives! Learn why researchers in the Teaching Redesign Corp 3.0/4.0 are so excited about mistakes! This session includes findings from an exploratory research study conducted by members of the Teaching Redesign Corps.
