Join Gretchen and Megan tin this wide ranging discussion that explores:

  • Some science behind why mistakes are a crucial part of learning
  • How the Study Cycle mirrors this science
  • Tips for creating a mistake-friendly environment
  • and More!

This is a topic that Gretchen is just beginning to think about with more depth, so if you have any thoughts to add, please email her at gretchen [at] gretchenwegner [dot] com.
