Most of us view the idea of success as a positive outcome, while failure is viewed as inherently negative. Failure is not something we strive for when we set out to accomplish our goals. However, being proactive about our mistakes and taking the time to reflect on our missteps can actually be a really productive way to learn and grow, both in our personal and professional lives.
In Failing Forward: Instructional Design in the Trenches, nine instructional designers share their experiences with failure; what they learned from their early mistakes, and how they made changes that improved their work moving forward. Each story contains valuable lessons and inspiring takeaways that you can take back to your own work.
