Failing Forward Event
“If you ask a person whether he or she has failed in the past year, the vast majority will remember a small or big failure. However, only a small minority is willing to share their failures in public. Intuitively, people tend to hide their failures: only when they have been able to turn their failures into a success, they dare to speak up. To break the taboo and normalize failure, University College Tilburg, study association Extra Muros and Studium Generale invite students, professors and alumni to share their failures, instead of their success stories.”
In your schedule you will find a PASS session on Friday 27 November from 15:00 – 16:30. This session refers to the virtual Failing Forward event and presentation of the book “Success and Failure in Higher Education: Building Resilience in Students”. This event is part of the Resilience Project, which aims to build a more resilient community by offering students tools to deal with setbacks. You do not need to register for the event, since all LAS students are expected to attend the event: you will automatically receive the link to the livestream.
