These five things are important, I suppose, but from where I sit they amount to reminding instructors to continue to hold students' hands even while setting them free. The five 'mistakes' are:

2. Unclear Learning Outcomes
3. Misuse of the environment
4. Illusive grading practices
5. Inadequate time allocation
