“Giving our scholars a caring space and an innovative self-paced timeline to make sense of their world with tasks that pique their intellectual curiosity, crafting purposefully posed probing questions, and establishing a delicate balance between a productive struggle and pure perseverance to try again is a great educator mindset to have towards life-long learning and coaching!“
