What motivates children to learn, and how much of a part does innate ability really play in success?

One of the world’s leading psychologists Professor Carol Dweck visits the RSA to demonstrate how students’ growth and fixed mindsets shape their motivation and learning.

She will discuss new research showing a) how parents' and teachers' praise can create fixed mindsets and undermine children's motivation, b) how fixed-mindset school environments can decrease the representation of women and minorities, and c) how teaching students a growth mindset increases their success in school.

Speaker: Professor Carol S. Dweck is widely regarded as one of the world's leading researchers in the fields of personality, social psychology and developmental psychology.

Chair: Dr Jonathan Rowson, RSA
