Develop a growth mindset to overcome obstacles

Identify my learning mindset and develop strategies to improve my beliefs about my potential

Mindset is a part of your psychology that relates to your beliefs and perspectives about yourself, your ability and your potential. Carol Dweck an amazing pioneer in this research categorised two mindsets, a fixed mindset and a growth mindset. She discovered that a growth mindset was required for learning however individuals don't always hold this type of perspective about their capacity and potential.

This means that individuals experience reduced motivation and engagement in learning and learners were less willing to stretch and develop themselves. Those learners could develop unhelpful patterns and habits related to learning which results in a disengagement from school and stops the development of lifelong learning skills, required to get us unstuck, develop our resilience and motivation.

Developing a growth mindset when faced with learning challenges is a critical skill, this course will help you identify your mindset within a learning context and help you improve or maintain that for future learning challenges.

I am delighted that my Year 8 son did this course. We both found the information on his learning preferences and styles very insightful and it has helped him work out ways to motivate himself and to be more engaged at school. Thanks, Rosie, I'd say we'll be back for a refresher before Year 12!
