Show Notes

We are familiar with practice as a method for getting better at something. But what if this idea was only one part of the importance of practice? What if a key aspect of practice was learning how to fail? Professors Anna Mudde and Robert Piercey (University of Regina) discuss what practices are and how they are essential in renewal and innovation, ideally preventing traditions and our own personal identities from stagnating and becoming rigid.
