General Description

Too many students believe they don’t need to learn, or that they can’t learn. Professor Carol Dweck contends that this is due to students developing a Fixed Mindset with regard to their capabilities. Dweck argues that learning is stunted and many social issues can arise by having a Fixed Mindset. She says in order for students to flourish, they need a Growth Mindset – a disposition that embraces challenge, seeks out feedback and values effort as the pathway to mastery. Could a Growth Mindset be the key to unlocking our students potential, and how can teachers and schools cultivate a culture of Growth in their classrooms and schools?

This course will explore the research behind and implications of Mindset, as well some of the most common behaviours associated with holding a Fixed or Growth Mindset. Participants will be encouraged to reflect on their own mindset, and how some of our most common practices in school might serve to nurture or limit the mindsets of our students.
