2 Dr Sue Owen Coventry University Learning from Mistakes A different way of learning

3 Dr Sue Owen Coventry University What is Learning from Mistakes?  A way of testing the depth of understanding achieved by students.  A fun method of getting information about usually boring subjects across.  A last resort for a lecturer who had tried everything!

4 Dr Sue Owen Coventry University How it evolved  Initially applied to CAD drawings then to standard BS 8888 technical drawings.  The drawings were produced with mistakes on them and labelled as the lecturer’s own work.  Students were asked to mark the mistakes and note what was wrong.  Then they were told not to make the same mistakes themselves in their work.

5 Dr Sue Owen Coventry University Why use this idea?  The same mistakes re-occurred annually.  Telling students how to draw to standard did not always work.  Practicing their own drawings, with feedback from lecturer was not always successful.  Students really like to find fault with a lecturer’s work.  It is a totally different and a fun way of assessing knowledge

6 Dr Sue Owen Coventry University When can this be used?  As a formative, but fun, session.  When students have already had feedback and need reinforcement of theories.  To assist learning in problem areas.  To give detailed information in a format which will help the student to produce better work.
