Productive failure is an approach in which conventional instruction is reversed: learners attempt to solve problems and ponder questions before receiving explicit instruction. We will explore strategies for fostering learning from errors and applying deliberate practice to build resilience, cultivate a growth mindset, and make the classroom an inclusive space for everyone.
