Failure is an inevitable part of life, but it's often accompanied by shame -- most people do everything in their power to avoid it. But 'failing forward' can provide a great learning opportunity and should be viewed as an essential step along the path to success, both academically and in life. The ‘freedom to fail’ means freedom to explore, venture, experiment and ultimately, succeed in uncharted territory in and outside the classroom. Join us as we discuss ways to challenge students to take positive risks and broaden their horizons, even at the risk of falling short, and then encourage them (and ourselves!) to reflect and build upon the life lessons learned, for even greater rewards in the future.
