This special session/workshop seeks to encourage Zui Quan pedagogy and risk taking in everyday classroom practice. The term "Zui Quan" refers to a style of Chinese martial arts that is loosely translated as "drunken fist" or "drunken boxing." To the untrained eye, the practitioner appears uncoordinated, untrained, intoxicated, and vulnerable. However, those trained in Zui Quan are capable of powerful attacks and require a significant amount of skill to proceed with an ease of flow from one movement to another. The same may be said for those practicing innovative pedagogies in the classroom. The overall goal of the session is to address issues that inhibit faculty from taking pedagogical risks and provide tools and support that will aid faculty with implementing these approaches in their course.
