Short Description

Teaching students to develop their growth mindset it important, but what about teachers and staff? How do we as educators, leaders, and support personnel develop our own growth mindset? This session explores strategies and innovations in applying growth mindset principles from the work of Carol Dweck in various departments and support staff roles throughout an organization by empowering teachers, support staff and leadership to focus on their own mindset.

Abstract

This session will include research from Carol Dweck on why and how growth mindset principles can make a difference for teachers, leaders and support staff within an organization. The session will include a discussion on what growth mindset is and how it can be applied to daily work to empower teachers, leaders and support staff. The main objectives for this session will be to learn strategies for improving morale on your team through developing a growth mindset, brainstorm ideas for increasing productivity using growth mindset techniques and share growth mindset stories across departments to build and empower support staff. These objectives are based on research that states, “Employees with growth mindsets welcome challenges, work harder and more effectively, and persevere in the face of struggle which makes them more successful learners and better contributors to their organizations than employees with fixed mindsets. (Briceno, 2015) The session will share with attendees the power behind the word yet, and why it is so important to focus on mindsets to get the most out of any learning experience but especially a distance learning experience. At Florida Virtual School we have applied growth mindset principles to our work with students and this session will focus on the importance of also applying these same principles to our work as teachers, leaders and support personnel.
