How do we help students to risk failure and “fail better” in order to learn more deeply from the experiential learning opportunities? In this interactive, interdisciplinary workshop, we will discuss models for addressing students’ mindsets, evidence-based strategies for helping students engage in problem-solving, and ways to celebrate setbacks for their potential to help us move forward. The link between achieving excellence and honoring failure as a necessary part of growth is one that exists across disciplines, fields of inquiry, and our personal and professional lives…Bring your favorite quotes about the power of failure, and prepare to take away some practical strategies for using setbacks productively with your students.
