Why is failure shameful at school and work, but in sports and games it’s skill development?
At F.A.I.L. University, rapid failure and recovery is encouraged. Our “Fearless Adventures In Learning” model research-based motivation and resilience-building strategies for instructors of all stripes. By making failure fun, we inspire learners to tackle their education without fear.
MAKE FAILURE FUN
When I began designing my public and grad school lessons like games there was a dramatic shift: my students were more engaged, they persevered through difficult problems, and most importantly, they embraced failures as opportunities for growth.
Now I’m on a quest to share this approach with teachers, trainers and coaches in and outside of school. Together we can inspire all learners to think of education as an adventure.
