Reframe tough times with the Fail to Succeed workshop for PGRs

 ‘Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better’ – Samuel Beckett

Zoom workshop for PGRs: Tuesday 21 July 2.30- 4pm

Failure is hard to talk about and we tend to view it as a negative or even shameful experience. However, learning from our mistakes and understanding why we failed, is an important building block of success. In other words, learning how to fail better teaches us how to succeed.

The Fail to Succeed online workshop aims to address the stigma around failure in academia, and reframe it as not only a necessity, but as a positive experience in helping to build the resilience necessary to inspire future success

The session will examine the ups and downs of failure in academia through a series of talks from a range of speakers at varying stages of their academic career from all three faculties. There will also be the chance to ask questions and engage in discussions and share experiences.

This event is open to all postgraduate researchers looking to develop their resilience.

Limited spaces are available on this Zoom workshop so please register early to avoid disappointment.
