To err is human - and can promote learning | Nikol Rummel | TEDx Ruhr University Bochum

#tedxrub2019 #embracetheunexpected #trialanderror

Nikol Rummel shines a new light on failure in her talk and focuses on its productivity for learning. She argues that struggling can help activate relevant prior knowledge and allows us to gain a deeper understanding of a problem, and can thus prepare us for learning more successfully from subsequent instruction. The talk offers insights that might be relevant to both students and instructors in embracing the unexpected and leveraging failure to learn better.

Nikol Rummel is Full Professor of Educational Psychology in the Institute of Educational Research at Ruhr-Universität Bochum and Adjunct Professor in the Human-Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh.
________

TEDx RuhrUniversityBochum was started in 2016 by a group of students enthusiastic about bringing the TEDx format to the Ruhr Area. In May 2019, we turned our TEDx conference into one of the largest TEDx events in Europe organized by students. We connected over 1,000 people at our TEDx event and brought 13 speakers to Bochum who presented their ideas and visions regarding the motto "Embrace the Unexpected".

„Embrace the unexpected“ is not just a theme, it is an attitude.
It is to look courageously and curiously towards the future and confidently embrace the manifold challenges of our time. To understand the new and unexpected as a learning opportunity for progress and not as a source of uncertainty. Such an attitude is needed in a rapidly changing world, now more than ever.
