|Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students||
Our workshops give practical tips and suggestions to help teachers and their students develop their Growth Mindset.Key messages explored in the day include:
A History of Intelligence and Ability
The Role of Effort
Dealing With Setbacks
|Evidence underpinning this approach||
Our workshops and blogs are founded on the latest peer reviewed research in Neuroscience, Educational Psychology and Sports Psychology. We are supported in this work by our research team. Our Growth Mindset workshops use research from Carol Dweck andother researchers to explore how students can develop their skills.
A recent survey found that 98% of teachers believe that if their students have a growth mindset it will lead to improved student learning, but only 20% of them believe they are good at fostering a growth mindset and 85% want more training and practical strategies.
We have seen a real commitment from schools up and down the country to embrace this psychological theory which has generated some really positive strategies. These include tweaking how teachers give feedback to students, encouraging self-reflection through good questioning and praising their processes instead of their natural abilities. Now teachers want more. The good news is that there is a growing body of research that may offer an increasingly better insight into how to develop a growth mindset environment. We explore this in our CPD.
