  • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM - Mindsets Workshop, CLIC (lunch provided for registrants) - Many students in the Curry Community have engaged in discussions of Carol Dweck's Mindset in both formal and informal settings; however, there may still be questions about how to apply the Mindset concept in your professional life as a future teacher, administrator, researcher, or service-provider. This interactive workshop will provide an opportunity to consider real-life applications of fixed v. growth mindsets. We will use an interactive case study approach as the basis for hands-on activities and will also share several creative examples of multimedia products that have been created by students to represent the growth mindset concept.
