A bit of stress, a bit of ambiguity, and a bit of confusion are healthy contributors to learning. As long as we have a feedback loop where learners can contribute and faculty can respond and adapt, we have the basics in place.
Connections are the starting point of all learning. It’s so obvious…and therefore so often overlooked. We really need to think about types of connections learners have with each other and content…and ways that we can extend the learning experience by critically analyzing and forming those initial connections.
