Thank you for this piece. I love to hear about the learning journeys we as adults need to go through to best serve our students. Its the best medicine for a fixed mindset and keeps us feeling a strong sense of empathy for what it is like to be a learner in any subject. I have many colleagues who cringe at the idea of learning new technologies or even basic electronics (some in the science department!). What advice do you have for encouraging the adult learners in our lives to try something new and potentially hard?
