Using Growth Mindset to Enhance Students’ Learning Focus

Workshop Description


Thousands of teachers around the world have introduced growth mindset to their students in the expectation that it will enhance learning and build resilience. However, the two meta-analyses examining the impact of growth mindset show a disappointingly-low effect (0.1 to 0.19, less than half of the typical effect). The main cause of this is that too many schools have a performance-focus and are therefore unable to make the most of growth mindset; indeed, growth mindset might be contradictory and therefore an unhelpful distraction in these circumstances.

However, as a vehicle for creating and enhancing a learning-focused environment, growth mindset can have a very significant effect. Drawing on his many speaking tours with Carol Dweck, as well as his deep understanding of the mindset research, James Nottingham will show you how to take the best steps towards a learning-focus that uses growth mindset to maximum effect.

• Understand the real messages about Growth Mindset (rather than the urban myths).

• Learn the best strategies for building a Growth Mindset culture so that all people (staff and students) benefit.
