We've been there, haven't we? We planned what we thought was an ideal class: a good discussion prompt intact; an engaging, interactive lecture ready to go; the groupwork activity or blog prompt sure to get our students going. And then, in seeming disbelief, it all falls apart and we find ourselves asking, "What happened?!"

All too often, we tend to focus on pedagogical successes without also reflecting on those aspects of our teaching that "at least initially" don't go so well. In this session, we'll have a conversation about some of our "worst classes ever" with the intention of opening a space for thinking about innovation and improvement. When classroom challenge becomes an opportunity for reflection and rethinking, how can we transform our "worst class ever" into a project for pedagogical exploration and discovery?
