Conversations on Teaching: Helping Students Learn from Failure

3/12/20 10:30 AM - 3/12/20 11:30 AM
Location: Grand View University - Rasmussen Center, Room 208 (CETL)
What happens when a student fails and exam or a some other high-stakes assignment? Sure, we give them feedback, but do our students know how they might most effectively use it? This session will look at ways in which failure or other academic adversity can be leveraged in the service of further learning, rather than simply shutting things down. We’ll explore how we might create opportunities for students to practice reflection and metacognition in order to successfully integrate feedback into their work.
