“Academics: You are going to fail, so learn how to do it better”…
Failure is everywhere and nowhere for academics. Manuscripts and grant applications are written but rejected, career plans go awry, students struggle, interpersonal conflicts occur, job applications are unsuccessful. And yet our CVs, departments and conferences focus on success – making it appear constant and effortless for others.
While it may not seem so, to fail is to learn, which in turn can help you succeed. Have a look at this article by our very own Alex Clark (FoN Associate Dean, Research) and Bailey Sousa (Director, International Institute for Qualitative Methodology) to find out what you can do to embrace failure and learn from your mistakes.
