The Theory of Mindsets

31 January 2017

In this talk Ian Morris, Head of Wellbeing at Wellington College, explored one of the most important pieces of educational research.

In the 1980s, Professor Carol Dweck conducted research into the effect of a person’s beliefs about their own intelligence on the progress that they made with learning. Her research was ground-breaking and shows us that what we believe about our own intelligence and how we give praise to others has a significant impact on how well we learn. This talk will explain Dweck’s research and its impact for pupils, teachers and parents alike.
