Failing to Learn and Learning to Fail as Academics

Spring 2023


More Details

Participants will learn how to lean into and leverage failures as powerful learning tools along the zig-zag path of teaching, researching, and writing in academia. Learn about the benefits of building and abandoning prototypes, fusing and remixing rejected ideas, and revisiting deadends.


This is a Zoom workshop.

You will receive a Zoom meeting link the day before the workshop.

Follow us on Twitter to stay up-to-date on planned workshops, special events, and faculty book groups as well as highlighted articles that may be of interest to you.

If you're unable to attend a scheduled workshop, we typically record them and make them available via our YouTube channel.

If you're looking for some just-in-time training or want to dig a little deeper into a specific topic of interest, MTSU subscribes to both Teaching Professor ("reflects the changing needs of today's college faculty and the students they teach") and Academic Leader ("reflects the evolving needs of academic deans, department chairs and heads, program directors, and others with leadership responsibilities") online publications. If attempting to access either publication off-campus, you'll be asked to enter your MTSU credentials.

If you have an idea for a potential future workshop, please feel free to send your suggestions to Dr. Lando Carter.
