Stanly Community College Regional Workshop

Emotional Intelligence, Student Efficacy, and the Growth Mindset

Workshop Description

Have you ever wished you could change your students’ attitudes toward more positive engagement in their learning? YOU CAN! The secret rests in appreciating that all of us have a profound impact upon the emotional state of the students that we engage with every day. Whether interacting with individuals or groups, the neuroscience is clear: the affective domain (the area dedicated to how people learn) powerfully impacts student cognition, persistence, motivation, and performance. During this multidimensional, highly-interactive, experiential, and fun presentation, participants explore ways to promote positive, enthusiastic, and engaged collaboration among students. They also experience how to generate student collaboration in a manner that maximizes motivation, a sense of inclusion, and equity within their learning environments!

By the end of this workshop, participants know or are able to:

  • Demonstrate the emotional impact of every single communication.
  • Describe the positive outcomes of achieving high levels of resonance.
  • Identify, nurture, and develop talents, rather than focus on weaknesses.
  • Understand how positive emotions expand cognition.
  • Explain how the affective domain profoundly influences persistence.
  • Analyze premises behind the “Growth Mindset” and “Brain Plasticity.”


Participate in a 60-second paper, role-playing demonstrations, pair and share activities, and interviews with feedback.
