Jeremiah Sullins Academic Shame Researcher

Recently we’ve learned that many students learn best not when things are well explained to them, but rather when they’re just a little bit confused. Professor Jeremiah Sullins (interviewed in episode 267) talked about his work on Productive Confusion. Now he’s on to a related topic: what if instead of being motivated by confusion, students who are prone to shame wind up feeling so frustrated that they feel ashamed of their confusion and lose the motivation to learn? That’s what we’ll address in this interview with Dr. Sullins and his work on academic shaming.
