Psychologist Carol Dweck’s work on “growth mindsets” suggests that the way we understand our abilities has a profound effect on how well we learn.

Jenny Michael (Faculty Evaluation & Coaching) led this discussion of Dweck’s ideas and how we might apply her insights to helping our students better understand their potential as learners.
