"If at First You Don't Succeed": Using Failure To Improve Teaching.
Pinsky, Linda E.; Irby, David M.
Academic Medicine, v72 n11 p973-76 Nov 1997
Describes a survey of 20 distinguished clinical medical teachers concerning episodes of instructional failure that subsequently led to improvement in teaching. Identifies eight common failure types associated with each phase of teaching (planning, teaching, reflection) and respondents' suggestions for improvement for each. Notes that the deliberative process that guides planning, teaching, and reflecting had helped each transform failures into successes. (Author/MSE)
