Jul 09, 2022 PDF Document Chapter 17-Transforming Failure into Joyful Resilience-Confronting Failure - General Documents, Member Documents, Arts and Humanities Division
This chapter aims to establish the possibility and necessity of the high-impact practice of theatrical clowning to be used as a tool for developing failure resiliency in undergraduate researchers. The author shows how theatrical clowning directly engages with failure stimuli through an authentic engagement with fear, play, and laughter. The chapter pulls from theory, pedagogy, and student auto-ethnographic analysis of two case studies from the author’s course.

Jul 09, 2022 PDF Document Chapter 13-Helping Faculty Mentors Help Undergraduates-Confronting Failure - General Documents, Member Documents
This case study describes ways that the U-Kansas Ctr for Undergraduate Research normalizes research failures to create an understanding that research is an iterative process from exposure through expertise and that failing is just one of the steps in the process. It highlights the work done with faculty members to help them share and model their own research failures, which has proven to be a very effective way for students to learn to accept and embrace this crucial step in the research process

Jul 09, 2022 PDF Document Chapter 11-Picture This-Confronting Failure - General Documents, Member Documents, Arts and Humanities Division
This chapter summarizes how a research project became a just-in-time intervention strategy to enable undergraduate researchers to address what it means to fall short—either of their own goals or the goals they perceived that others held for them—and to set the stage for appropriate coping mechanisms they could exercise to address the disconnect. The project extends research about how undergrad STEM majors conceive of failure to a broader array of disciplines, including the arts and humanities.

Jul 09, 2022 PDF Document Chapter 8-No Such Thing as a Bad Question-Confronting Failure - General Documents, Member Documents, Arts and Humanities Division
This chapter uses findings from a mixed-methods study of undergraduates’ research experiences in a developmental writing course to suggest that writing bad research questions is a necessary part of the research process and that students can learn valuable lessons from the struggle to pose effective questions if given the necessary support. It offers a set of rubrics that can be used to evaluate the debatability, researchability, and feasibility of students’ research questions.

Jul 09, 2022 PDF Document Chapter6-Confronting Failure by Facilitating Transfer-Confronting Failure - General Documents, Member Documents, Arts and Humanities Division
This case study outlines the use of “Understanding by Design” (UbD; Wiggins and McTighe 1998) to structure a course-based undergraduate research experience in literary studies. After demonstrating how UbD is an apt model for mentoring undergraduate students through potential failure as they navigate messy and recursive discipline-specific research processes, it details pedagogical strategies and scaffolded assignments that align with the responsive teaching and metacognition UbD espouses.

Jul 09, 2022 PDF Document Chapter5-Successful Failure-Confronting Failure - General Documents, Member Documents, Psychology Division, Social Sciences Division
This chapter shines the light on how helping students re-perceive their experiences with failure allows them to boost confidence, well-being, and belongingness. The authors share a practice for re-perceiving failure—mindfulness-metacognition-mindset shift—which is applicable in nearly every situation where failure or difficulty can be encountered. Guidance is provided for implementing this practice within and beyond research settings.
