Cultivating a Growth Mindset
In her book "Mindset", Carol Dweck asks her readers, "Is learning about growing of proving you're smart by gathering evidence of good grades?" With the pressure to perform in school, students may sometimes feel the latter is true, but the ability to bounce back from a failure and learn from the experience becomes especially important in university and the workforce.
In this module, we teach students the difference between a growth and fixed mindset, the benefits the growth mindset has on academic performance and future successes, and how they can cultivate a Growth Mindset.
