Event description

Description

Met Talks is a new lecture series for Manchester Metropolitan University alumni, hosted by leading academics from across the University. The series is designed to continue lifelong learning, create networking opportunities and reconnect alumni.

Professor Nicola Whitton from the Faculty of Education presents 'Learning from failure: why grown-ups need to play too'

About the lecture

The current generation of young adults have grown-up in an education system that more than ever focuses on test results and measurable achievement. Failure is stigmatised, yet managing failure is an essential life skill. Nicola will argue that play – for all ages – is essential for developing resilience, learning to take risks, and stimulating creativity.
