The student experience of uncertainty often contains significant anxiety about the future. However, uncertainty is also something that can be harnessed to enhance creative and complex thinking. This workshop explores ways in which uncertainty can be utilized in the classroom to encourage exploration and adaptability, and lessen anxiety and fear of failure.

Part Two includes an activity and more in-depth discussion about teaching methods.
