Sure, you could do some sort of Petzl-like lower-off, but as a beginner KISS should rule - just lower off the draw you fell on and leave it.

With respect, there's no reason to leave an entire quickdraw under normal circumstances. If you can't swap out your quickdraw for a cheap carabiner you're willing to sacrifice, you probably shouldn't be sport climbing, cleaning anchors, etc.

I disagree for beginners, screwing around mid-route swapping gear isn't something they should be doing.

If they can't get how to perform this, they shouldn't be leading.
And as markc mentioned, especially cleaning an anchor.
