Growth mindset” This workshop presentation will introduce you to “growth mind-set”, why it is important and how to improve one’s mind-set. Dr. Dweck coined the terms fixed mind-set and growth mind-set to describe the underlying beliefs people have about learning and intelligence. When students believe they can get smarter, they understand that effort makes them stronger. Therefore they put in extra time and effort, and that leads to higher achievement.

This is open to both Post Primary and Primary Teachers. If you wish to attend this workshop please log onto our website www.edcentretralee.ie to book you place
