Podcast: Mistakes, Missteps, and Mindsets

Mistakes, Missteps, and Mindsets: Stories of Failure in Academic Research aims to address the stigma surrounding failure in academia. Each week, hosts Alex Whyte and Dr. Krystal Nunes will interview members of the Toronto Metropolitan University community any beyond where we dive into stories of professional failures and how they navigated those setbacks. Episodes can be found wherever you stream your favourite podcasts.



FLIP - Failure: Learning in Progress

An ongoing collaborative project with faculty at the University of Toronto Mississauga. The goal of the FLIP project is to normalize the experience of failure, promote equitable failure pedagogy, and stimulate positive institutional cultures for students, staff, instructors, and administrators alike. In additional to original research, this project has also developed resources for students and instructors.

More information can be found on the FLIP Project Website.

Case Study Teaching in Science

The Nunes Group is developing several case studies to be conducted in undergraduate science classes at the first and second-year level. For example, a case study designed for an undergraduate ecology course has students investigate factors impacting wetland biodiversity. Case study materials can be accessed on the NSTA website.


Lecture Resources: Failure and Representation in STEM

Failure is a critically important part of the scientific method, and scientific progress ultimately benefits from diverse voices. The Nunes Group is continually developing lecture materials to assist instructors in easily integrating examples of failure in science and underrepresented researchers in their classrooms.

Slides are available for instructor use:
