Faculty member Becca Price joins host Bonni Stachowiak as a guest on the podcast Teaching in Higher Ed. This episode is called “How to not be perfect in teaching and learning”, and Price discusses how all of us start out as scientists. She also talks about how learning means embracing our mistakes and that perfection does not equate to learning. As one example of how these philosophies translate to the classroom, Price talks about her grading scheme that allows students to take ownership of the parts of her courses they want to complete—and to do those parts well.
