What You Will Learn

The Growth Mindset Teacher online course gives you the deep understandings and practical tools you need to become a Growth Mindset teacher. Go beyond the social media hype, explore the Mindset Continuum and develop a rich set of pedagogical strategies that will develop robust and enduring Growth Mindsets in your students.

Over 12 weeks you will:

Explore the concept of the "Greatness Gap" as a key factor in the development of the Fixed Mindset and learn to identify and correct this misconception in your classroom.

Unpack the "5 Truths about Talent" and discover why the misunderstanding of these truths leads to the Fixed Mindset and how to teach so students develop an accurate understanding of these truths. 

Recognise that a Growth Mindset is just the invitation to grow, not the growth itself. Learn how to put the growth, back into Growth Mindset.

Go beyond "Praise Mistakes" and develop strategies that recognise and value the actions students take to correct mistakes.

Uncover the critical negative impact of the False Mindset and learn how to avoid it.

Delve into the Mindset Continuum and learn how to create powerful positive mindset movers through your classroom practice. 

Learn why “Praise Effort” has been misunderstood, why we need to focus on Effective Effort and, most importantly, how to get your students to engage in Effective Effort. 

Discover how a Growth Mindset is foundational to student success but why it is Learning Agility that will allow students to thrive in the 21st century.

Sample Lesson Video: What Success with Growth Mindsets Really Looks Like

This important lesson is drawn from the "Changing Mindsets" section of the course. It highlights the fact that we set ourselves and our colleagues up for failure if we expect our work to instantly result in students "having" a Growth Mindset. To do this work successfully we need to recognise Mindset as a continuum and our role in moving students towards a more growth oriented mindset.

Sample Lesson Video: Pedagogy for the Growth Mindset Teacher
