This presentation will summarize and discuss key findings from a special issue of the journal, Thinking Skills and Creativity (volume 30, published in December 2018), that Manalo and Kapur have guest edited to address the question of how failure can benefit learning. Important educational implications and applications emerged from the 15 papers included in the issue. These concern how people internally and externally represent experiences of failure, what beliefs they hold about effort and ability, how much the learning environment accepts and supports failure, cultivation of teacher and student skills in utilizing failure, and patience in allowing the benefits of failure to emerge.

Emmanuel Manalo, is a Professor of Educational Psychology at the Graduate School of Education of Kyoto University in Japan. He is originally from New Zealand and obtained his PhD from Massey University. He previously held academic appointments at the University of Auckland in New Zealand and Waseda University in Tokyo, Japan. His research interests include enhancement of teaching and learning strategies; diagram use for communication, problem solving, and thinking; strategies for improving foreign/second language education; and critical thinking.

After two visits to Kyoto University in 2018, Associate Professor Joanne Arciuli is pleased to welcome Professor Emmanuel Manalo as a guest at the University of Sydney in March, 2019. Assoc/Prof Arciuli conducts interdisciplinary basic and applied research on speech, language, literacy, and learning. She is a SOAR Fellow.
