Students Developing a Growth Mindset.

Presented by Kathleen C. Gerbasi, Ph.D., Professor Psychology.

Humanities and Social Sciences and Suzanne Buffamanti, Ph.D., Professor English.

This session will focus on the benefits to students of developing a growth mindset (students have better learning outcomes, higher GPA's, persistence, etc.).

A growth mindset is the belief an individual has that through continued purposeful effort they can improve their skills, that failure or lack of success is a normal part of learning, and that by repeated meaningful effort they will change their brain to increase their skill. The opposite view, messages and tasks that promote fixed mindsets will also be covered. We will discuss ways faculty can help students develop a growth mindset and support growth mindsets by how they structure their courses and messages provided to their students.

Faculty participation and discussion with examples of activities and course syllabi messages, that promote or possibly undermine growth mindset, are welcome. Resources, links, etc., will be provided.
