Full webcast from the RSA event on Monday 8 July 6pm BST. An edited HD video of the event will be available in the near future.
At the event, one of the world’s leading psychologists, Professor Carol Dweck visited the RSA to discuss how students’ mindsets shape their motivation and learning.
She discussed new research showing a) how parents’ and teachers’ praise can create fixed mindsets and undermine children’s motivation, b) how fixed-mindset school environments can decrease the representation of women and minorities, and c) how teaching students a growth mindset increases their success in school.
Chaired by Dr Jonathan Rowson, RSA
