Carol Dweck's (2008) work shows how a Growth Mindset can positively impact student academic performance. Less focus has been put on the importance of the educator mindset in this context. Recently it has been found that instructors' mindsets about their students' abilities and themselves affect student academic, belonging, and purpose mindset. In this session, educators will 1) learn about current developments in mindset research and associated brain research 2) explore the impact their mindsets have on their work and life and 3) share creative and mindful awareness practices that can help reshape mindsets during times of increased demands and stress.
