Assessment: How to turn your assessment setbacks into a learning success

About the topic

Failure. It’s a taboo subject. When starting university, you may be overwhelmed with study support, extra assessment assistance and resources, as well as being provided with multiple opportunities to accept help from your lecturers. But what happens if you fail, or don’t do as well as you had hoped? What happens when you accept that failure without learning from it? In this free one-hour webinar, you’ll hear about why learning from different types of failure is important, how to positively reframe that failure for future success and how to incorporate strategies to cope with any study let downs you may experience in future.
