Fostering a Growth Mindset: In Your Students and Yourself Webinar

Location: On-line
Time(s): 2:00 PM CT
Calendar: Other Agency Events/Webinars

About This Webinar  

Much has been written about the concept of a Growth Mindset, based on the seminal work of Dr. Carol Dweck at Stanford. The research is clear. Individuals with a growth mindset – that is, who believe that intelligence and talent can be developed – do better than those who think that talent is innate and that intelligence doesn’t change much.  

The concept is deceptively simple. But, as persuasive as the evidence is, it is not a plan for how to change our own mindsets or how to foster this in our ourselves, our students and children and within our organizations.  

This FREE webinar will be appropriate for parents, educators, and individuals wanting to improve their ability to change and adapt -- themselves or their organizations. In this webinar, we don’t seek to persuade you that a growth mindset is a good thing. We do aim to illuminate the following critical questions:  

  • How do I model a growth mindset?
  • How do I foster a growth mindset with my students/children/coworkers?
  • What strategies actually increase intelligence?
  • What does it really mean to praise the effort and not the outcome (and shouldn't we also be praising the outcome)?  

Prior to the webinar, you might want to take our Mindset Quiz. If you've ever wondered about how your own mindset stacks up, this quick quiz will give you an idea. https://brainware1.typeform.com/to/HhFMaB

NOTE: Due to the strong interest in this webinar, we are opening up this second session.

Agenda

  • How do I model a growth mindset?
  • How do I foster a growth mindset with my students/children/coworkers?
  • What strategies actually increase intelligence?
  • What does it really mean to praise the effort and not the outcome (and shouldn’t we also be praising the outcome)?  

Featured Presenter  

Betsy Hill is an experienced educator and President & COO of The BrainWare Company. She has studied the application of neuroscience to teaching and learning with Dr. Patricia Wolfe and other experts and works with educators, clinicians and corporate trainers on using neuroscience research to address some of the most perplexing problems in education, including closing the gap for historically underperforming students. She addressed issues of college and career preparedness as a trustee and board chair at Chicago State University. She holds a Master of Arts in Teaching and an MBA from Northwestern University, and teaches strategy at Lake Forest Graduate School of Management and the University of Illinois Chicago.  

I like to describe myself as a "recovering" educator, but the truth is that I am more excited than ever about what neuroscience is uncovering about the brain and how we can use that information to enable each individual to reach his or her cognitive potential. I'm here to share what I've been learning over the last ten years and to continue learn from others in this amazing and fast developing field.   Hosted By Brains ON!   Price FREE

About this event

Individuals with autism can have challenges that raise a wide range of safety concerns. They may wander off from caregivers and be unable to seek help when lost. They may not know how to respond to unwanted advances from strangers.

 

In this webinar, Bridget Taylor, cofounder and executive director of Alpine Learning Group, a school for students with autism, will review skills and techniques that help to ensure the safety of individuals with autism.
