The Learning Pit Bulletin Board
By James Nottingham
Known by many as the Learning Pit, the Learning Challenge is used around the world to promote challenge, dialogue and a growth mindset. James Nottingham created the Learning Challenge as a way to promote and enhance challenge and inquiry. Originally, James created a 4-step inquiry process (Concept – Challenge – Construct – Consider) in 2003, he came across the work of Butler & Edwards who described the process of going through a “pit” during periods of transformational change so he added the pit to the “4C steps” to create The Learning Challenge.
