Course Description

From the ancient world through the Renaissance, and even today – artistic and intellectual ability is often viewed as an intuitive gift rather than the result of effort. To what end?

Mindsets powerfully impact learning behaviour.
Learners with a growth mindset work harder, embrace challenge, persist for longer and learn from criticism, whereas the fixed mindset develops undesirable learning dispositions and character traits, ultimately under-achieving.

Teacher mindsets result in teacher expectations impacting student achievement.
It is important that teachers understand the impact their beliefs, words and actions have on cultivating the learning disposition of students.

Participants will learn

  • Evidence-based factors for achievement differentiation
  • Self-determination theory (intrinsic motivation); influencing self-motivation
  • The quality and the quantity of student effort
  • Mindsets and learning dispositions
  • High and low expectations of student ability
  • Help (too much, too soon), praise, talent attribution and other labels
  • High or healthy self-esteem
  • Growth mindset feedback strategies

Minimum and Max enrolment numbers: 6 – 20
