Faculty Mindset & Student Success • Journal Club & Lunch

May 30, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

(2019).  This large-scale study found that all college students performed better when learning from professors with growth mindsets (believing that intelligence is not a fixed trait but can be developed), a result that was strongest for students from underrepresented groups.
