In this paper, we report findings from a larger study that investigated design failure, as a phenomenon, in instructional design (ID) practice from the perspective of ID practitioners. Following an interpretive phenomenological study design, we interviewed 17 ID practitioners working in diverse settings, seeking their stories of design failure.…

Mike Coldwell; Nick Moore – British Educational Research Journal, 2024
Discussions of randomised controlled trials (RCTs) in education that do not show an impact regularly focus on the intervention and how it failed to impact on expected measures, with typologies identifying persistent critical points of failure. This paper uses one such RCT--the Integrating English programme--to exemplify the application of a new…

Stephen MacGregor – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2024
Background: Despite the growing interest in knowledge brokering as an approach to mobilising knowledge for societal benefit, research has only recently begun investigating the consequences of knowledge brokers' actions. In particular, while it is known that failure can provide a valuable learning experience for individuals and organisations alike,…

Murat Balkis; Sibel Duru; Erdinç Duru – Psychology in the Schools, 2024
Extant research has consistently demonstrated that both irrational and rational beliefs contribute to the occurrence and persistence of procrastination. Most of these studies have focused on the role of general irrational and rational beliefs, without addressing domain-specific beliefs that may influence academic procrastination. This…

Alex Quigley – Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, 2024
It is a truth universally acknowledged that pupils do not learn all that they are taught. They may learn something, they may even learn a lot, but it may not be a lot of what we think we have taught them or they may struggle to apply knowledge successfully. In this book, bestselling author Alex Quigley characterises how the long and winding road…

Jackson, Andrew; Godwin, Allison; Bartholomew, Scott; Mentzer, Nathan – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2022
Iteration and improvement are important attributes of design, tacitly indicating that failure is also a part of the process. There are different conceptions of failure in engineering contexts than in other academic settings. Therefore, for beginning designers, these failure experiences may be perceived as mishaps, lowering confidence or interest.…

Hains-Wesson, Rachael – Higher Education Research and Development, 2022
In this study, I explore a time when I collaborated on an education-focused research project, which failed. I articulate my experience of failure as a positive means for improving collaborative research practice. I achieve this by repositioning the critiquing of failure through an auto-ethnographical account, integrating an adapted version of the…

Bae, Jinhee; Hong, Seok-sung; Son, Lisa K. – Metacognition and Learning, 2021
Against intuition, a set of "desirable difficulties" has been touted as a way in which to improve learning and lengthen retention. This includes, for instance, varying the conditions of learning to allow for more active, effortful, or challenging, contexts. In the current paper, we introduce data that show that, on the contrary, learning…

Lynch, Jessica; Orsino, Angela; Kawamura, Anne – Advances in Health Sciences Education, 2022
Navigating difficult conversations is a complex task that requires flexible and adaptive approaches. Residents developing this skill may initially struggle or fail, and require support. However, this experience may prepare residents for future learning which is essential to adaptive expertise. Limited understanding of how residents learn from…

Guelich, Ulrike – International Journal of Instruction, 2022
Studies on the impact of innovation for entrepreneurship indicate that innovation is important to foster businesses through new or improved services, products or processes. However, from a gender perspective, lack of competitiveness and innovativeness has proven to destructively affect entrepreneurs, which in many cases led to failure. There is a…

Duh, Shinchieh; Goldman, Elizabeth J.; Wang, Su-hua – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2023
The present research examined whether U.S. infants can recognize in others a pattern of helping or hindering after watching such behaviors across multiple scenarios. Infants at 17 months watched three familiarization events in which a person (recipient) failed to achieve various goals and another person (actor) always helped or hindered the…

Oostendorp, Marcelyn – Applied Linguistics, 2023
The discourse of mastery is prominent in applied linguistics. The idea of mastery, however, does not remain only on the discourse level: curricula and policies are meant to be implemented, and therefore mastery and all that is associated with it (near perfection, dominance over something, etc.) is also practiced. In this paper, I argue that we…

David Ben Shannon – International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education (QSE), 2024
In this paper, I draw from an in-school music research-creation project to consider the complex, racist-ableist politics of failure in the early childhood classroom. I theorise failure as it unfolds through anxiety, which I conceptualise as an affect of failure, to discuss both the perverse possibilities and perilous precarities of (neuro)queer…

Lu Cao; Polly K. Lai; Hongzhi Yang – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2024
This study explored the use of an innovative instructional approach called Productive Failure (PF) to design an educational game and its support. The study then examined the effects of two different types of instruction--PF vs. Direct Instruction (DI)--on learning genetics and relevant mathematical knowledge in a Game-Based Learning (GBL)…

Sharon Faur; Olivia Valdes; Frank Vitaro; Mara Brendgen; Michel Boivin; Brett Laursen – Child Development, 2024
According to the failure model (Patterson & Capaldi, 1990), peer rejection is the intermediary link between problem behaviors and internalizing symptoms. The present study tested the model with 464 monozygotic and same-sex dizygotic twin pairs (234 female, 230 male dyads). Teacher-reported reactive aggression and internalizing symptoms, and…
