18 Oct 2017

11am to 3pm

Introduction

Changing Mindsets is a HEFCE funded project focused on closing the attainment differentials of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) and working class students.

Across the Higher Education sector, BAME, international and working class undergraduates are less likely to achieve a first or upper second class degree than their counterparts, despite entering with the same qualifications. The aim to is develop growth mindsets in both students and staff to challenge stereotypes and implicit bias.
 
To build on the attainment work at LCC, this workshop will draw upon Mindset research by Carol Dweck and map this to UALs Creative Attribute Framework to explore how to develop growth mindsets.
 
What is the overall aim?

To introduce and explore Mindset Theory to support inclusive learning and teaching and to give opportunities for reflection, discussion and planning.

At the end of the workshop you will be able to:

 
  • understand the difference between growth and fixed mindsets 
  • understand the impact that these different mindsets have
  • be aware of stereotypes and biases and their implication
  • think critically about talent and intelligence
  • consider personal learning orientations and mindsets

 
What can I do next?
Attend the second LCC Changing Mindsets staff workshop from 11-3pm on Wednesday 15th November 2017 (location tbc).
