Harnessing Mindsets to Improve Student Success (Praxis Workshop)

Michelle Sabick

Scientific evidence suggests that students' success in the classroom is more closely related to the way they approach and overcome obstacles than to their innate abilities. In this session, we will talk about the neuroscience research that underpins these findings and how you can harness this knowledge to help students become more resilient and successful in their academic careers.
