Understanding How Stereotype Threat and Growth Mindset Affect Student Learning

This session is full. There will be an identical session held on Friday, November 10th. If you are interested in this event please see Understanding How Stereotype Threat and Growth Mindset Affect Student Learning 11/10 to register.

Research shows that when students worry about fulfilling a negative stereotype related to certain social identities, it can hurt their learning (a phenomenon known as stereotype threat). Research also shows that an instructor’s beliefs about their own and their students’ intelligence and ability impact the classroom environment. In this interactive session, participants will reflect on instructor and student social identities and learn about strategies for mitigating stereotype threat and encouraging a growth mindset for students in their classes.
