Center for Social Justice Workshop: Why We Make Mistakes

The Center for Social Justice invites you to participate in its Fall 2018 CSJ Workshops series. On Monday, October 15, Emily Cotton will present, "Why We Make Mistakes." Mistakes are the scaffolding of learning. Mistakes can lead to questions and build innovative learning environments. Ultimately, mistakes can help us become empathetic, observant, creative, resilient and reflective. This workshop outlines how different cultures and people view mistakes, and how as educators we can help bridge the gap between feelings of failure and using failure as a catalyst for success. With snacks!
