Members of HISTSOTL ran a workshop at the recent International Society for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Conference at Liverpool, UK. The theme was “Embracing Failure and Learning From Mistakes”. The panel first discussed the literature (or absence) around failure in teaching and learning before sharing some of their own learning moments around failure. The workshop then moved into small groups for further discussion.
Also at Liverpool, HISTSOTL member Alan Booth and Jeanne Booth continued their work for the History Passion Project. This included some interviews and a filmed panel discussion. For more details visit http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/cross_fac/heahistory/research/gwi/history_passion/
