It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time: Learning from Failure
Deadline for Submissions was: January 15, 2018
Describe an assignment, activity, presentation, or course that you designed with care but which resulted in an outcome you did not anticipate. What did you hope to accomplish? What was the result? How do you make sense of the gap between expectation and outcome? What did you learn from failing in this way?
Successful essays will draw on relevant literature and include thoughtful analysis of pedagogical solutions, experiments, challenges, and student learning in specific contexts.
We welcome full length articles (maximum 10,000 words) or shorter “Notes from the Classroom,” one page “Teaching Tactics,” and even 2,000 to 5,000 word “short takes” on the topic. See a description of these genres here.
All manuscripts will be vetted through the journal’s outside double blind peer-review process.
Deadline was January 15, 2018
