Mindset Conferences, 2-6 Sept 2019

With Carol Dweck and James Nottingham


We are delighted to announce five conferences featuring Professor Carol Dweck, the researcher behind Growth Mindset, and James Nottingham, creator of The Learning Pit. Together, they will be sharing insights into what makes growth mindset research so important; why schools are struggling to realise the benefits of growth mindset and what can be done about it; the relationship between mindset, self-efficacy and performance; and the steps that teachers, leaders and parents can take to help build young people’s resilience, curiosity and motivation for learning.

Following successful tours together in 2010, 2013, and 2017, these two inspirational educators will be keynoting conferences in London, Copenhagen, Utrecht and Riga in Sept 2019.
