Put on Your Own Oxygen Mask First: Cultivating a Growth Mindset for Yourself & Your Students

As we tackle increasing complexity and new academic challenges, it is inevitable that we will experience setbacks. How we react to these setbacks depends a great deal on our inclination towards a fixed or growth mindset. Students are able to perceive a teacher’s mindset through both formal and informal interactions. To exhibit a growth mindset as teachers, it is important to examine our own beliefs and inclinations about the malleability of human traits. In this workshop, we will explore how our own notions of potential and ability can have a fundamental impact on how we approach our work and our teaching roles. We will discuss strategies to personally cultivate a growth mindset so that we can more authentically create a growth mindset environment in our classrooms. This workshop will be led by Dr. Lourdes Alemán, Associate Director for Teaching and Learning at MIT’s Teaching and Learning Lab. Dr. Alemán is this year’s invited speaker for the Sheridan Center Teaching Consultant program. This workshop is designed for graduate students and postdocs. Please register to receive the zoom link.
