Teaching and Learning by Way of Failure?

Bengt-Arne Vedin

Abstract


From our earliest days, we learn through trying and failing. Early on, this is the natural way of learning. An unexpected and blatant failure has a large, possibly traumatic, impact. So why not conscious inclusion of learning from failure in education: testing, trying, and experimenting, transferring experiences between different domains of knowledge? How may such education, with an emphasis on learning results, be designed?


Keywords


Failure; departure(from); exception; learning; experiencing; teaching.
