How can space facilitate the process of “making” knowledge, including demystifying failure, nurturing, and embracing students as assets, and promoting life-long-learning?
Our group saw this as an important question as we began to think about students as assets in the learning process. We understand failure as an integral part of the process of generating knowledge and also understand that this is threatening to students who find failure uncomfortable. Students know they are coming to our campuses to learn. That does not mean that they are inherently ready to fail.
