Adopting a Growth Mindset for Education

A growth mindset is the belief that intelligence can be developed with effort. Students with a growth mindset understand they can get 'smarter' through hard work, the use of effective strategies, and getting help from others when needed. A fixed mindset is the belief that intelligence is a fixed trait handed out at birth. Course participants will review the research about the brain and how the brain, like a muscle, changes and grows in response to challenge. Throughout the course we will explore how we, as educators, can praise students for effort and process rather than praising them for being 'smart.' Participants will take with them practical strategies to implement whether they are teachers, counselors, speech therapists, nurses, parents, or simply anyone who wants to learn more about fostering a growth mindset in themselves or others. 

This course is offered in partnership with Immaculata University, at registration participants will have the option of earning 3 CPE Credits (90 Act 48 Hours) or 3 Graduate Credits.
