Taking risks in learning is an important way to learn and retain more because you are engaged in the learning. Because taking risks can produce anxiety; taking risks takes emotional bravery. Both volunteering and making educated guesses takes this type of bravery and are ways to better the odds that you will come out with greater learning and understanding. Belief in yourself impacts your ability to take risks and succeed. My goal in teaching these classes is to set you up for success, not failure. So taking risks in your learning and assessments will lead you to success. Success means that you excel!!!
