Who should attend? 

Teachers of ALL subjects and key stages, and Senior Leaders looking to embed Growth Mindsets in their schools.

‘Mindsets’, the simple but compelling idea put forward by Carol Dweck of Stanford University, has taken the US educational system by storm and challenged the way our Stateside colleagues view learning, talent and ability. In the UK, with less fanfare, but as much enthusiasm, the numbers of supporters of mindset theory have steadily grown. Teachers and school leaders have found the approaches and practical tips suggested by mindsets theory have had a clear impact on the performance of learners in their classrooms.

This course looks at the way growth mindset theory can inform teaching practice and gives practical tips for embedding the positive ethos of growth mindsets into your classroom and school. Starting with a look at how theories of intelligence can be of benefit to teachers, the course explains in detail the implications of growth mindset theory for educators.

This course explains what mindsets are, and what they are not. It makes clear how to move forward confidently with fostering a growth mindset at each level. The course begins with the classroom, describing the teaching practices that we can all adopt and the learning behaviours we can all promote. We then take a wider view and see how phase and whole school reinforcement is so important to support teachers. There are strategies needed that promote and determine the outcomes of growth mindset initiatives and unlock those advantages for our whole school community.

Aims of the course: 

  • Promote and embed growth mindsets in classrooms
  • Put Carol Dweck’s Mindsets theory into practice
  • Embed the language of Growth Mindset in your classrooms
  • Improve your use of praise and feedback

Course tutor: Joe Warren
