Introduction to the Course
The course is designed for teachers, lecturers and tutors teaching adult learners, including; graduates, undergraduates and the interested public.
For teachers and tutors the course will look at advances in psychological knowledge about failure, which helps you integrate this important topic into your teaching.
For adult learners, the course will help them to appreciate the positive effects of failure and its potential impact on their everyday life. The goal of the course is to make the existing positive effects of failure accessible to everybody.
The materials are designed for various uses. The course can be used as a whole curriculum or parts of it might be integrated to supplement other courses. All materials are provided as open source and each section of this course offers a variety of additional online materials such as videos or websites about the topic.
As some learners might want to learn the content (or just parts of it) individually, all modules and additional learning resources are provided online.
Teachers and tutors can also use the course on their own for professional development. Information about how we suggest the materials can be used are provided at the beginning of each tutors workbook for each module.
The course can be used in a classroom environment as well as a self-contained distance learning course.
