Adopting a Growth Mindset in Education

This is a 3 credit (90 Act 48 Hours) online course offered through a partnership with Immaculata University. At registration course participants have the option to add Immaculata University graduate credit to the course (read additional details below).Time Frame: 9/22/2021-10/13/2021

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 is an online course. An email will be sent a few days before the start date with information on how you will participate in this event.

The cost of the graduate credit is $600 ($200 per credit) in addition to the base fee for the course. Once the course starts the decision to add (or not) Immaculata credit is final. At the successful conclusion of the course students will receive a transcript from Immaculata University.
Michael and Rhonda Bielawski are the instructors. You may email the instructor for questions about the content of the program. For registration questions please email: cmarch@bucksiu.org
