Growth Mindset: Growing the Minds of First-Year College Students
At the beginning of each semester or term, college campuses are overtaken by the excitement and curiosity of incoming freshmen students. They are excited, they are eager, and they are enthused. But do they know “how to college”? Do they have the proper mindset to be successful in our classrooms? This webinar shares tools and strategies instructors can use to help students develop a “growth mindset,” one that will catapult them into true college success.
