[Day2: Failing Better Together]
Q: What does "failure" mean to you?

For me, my #sciencefails & #SciComm fails fuel my teaching & community-building values:
- Creating spaces to fail better
- Building communities to exchange learnings
- Scaffolded experiences to reframe failure KyleMarian on a microphone with her back to the camera. She's facing the audience and hosting a storytelling show.
#Failure is an important part of #Science & #Comedy, but it wasn't until I got into comedy where I started understanding the impact of being transparent & celebrating failures.

It also got me thinking: does #Academia have an integrated process & outlet for dealing w/ failure?
Do you incorporate #journaling or #reflections into your #SciComm practice?
If you work in teams, do you have regularly-scheduled de-briefs?
As professionals, are you given allotted times in your paid schedule to reflect on project learnings?
Institutionally-supported initiatives to celebrate #ScienceFails make a big difference. Just ask:

- @cfail2019, a conference for "Insightful Failures in #Cryptology"
- @caveatnyc's #ScratchPaper #OpenMic
- @CUPostdocs #SciComm club
- @CSHL_WISE's storytelling night
But also check out these projects on how they reframe & spotlight #Failure in STEM & Academia

@webmz_'s #ScienceConfessionals
@MelanieIStefan + Johannes Haushoffer's #CVofFailures
Do you have other examples where your #academic #Science #SciComm community created opportunities or events to spotlight #Failure in #STEM?

Pls share them. And what you got out of the experience of either watching/participating/planning it. Let's inspire a culture of change.
