Setback? Exploring Failure and Resilience in the Library

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Conversations around failure and resilience can be as vital to building a foundation for academic success as studying and hard work. The ability to "bounce back" from academic setbacks in turn influences retention, a key goal of any educational institution. As the library and the "largest classroom on campus," what could our role be in consciously fostering resilience and the "growth mindset" that reinforces the desire to learn?  Be prepared to embrace failure, reflect on  your own mindset, and discuss how we can encourage students to carry on to the summit!
