‘Embracing Failure’ Theme of Clark University’s Spring Symposium
Saturday, January 25, 2014
Why failure? "Failure, as we intimately know, can have real consequences on not only our academic trajectories, but our psyches," writes Professor Eric DeMeulenaere in the Department of Education, who will lead a dialogue to kick off the series on Tuesday, January 28th, at 7pm. "Yet research has revealed the importance of failure in the development of character traits essential for later success (Many Olympic athletes were not the most successful competitors in their sport as children)."
For more information about the wisdom of failure or the many related topics to be addressed during these events, community members are invited to call the Higgins School at 508-793-7479 or email HigginsSchool@clarku.edu.
