“The ‘learners’ are the people who take on challenges… who thrive in the face of difficulty… Why would anyone become a non-learner?” Carol Dweck explains why educators and parents should want “achievement to come as a by-product of vigorous, meaningful, and effective learning.”

Stanford Professor Carol Dweck’s pioneering research — popularized in her classic book Mindset: The New Psychology of Success, and more recently represented in Bronson and Merryman’s NurtureShock – has led to our understanding of the ‘growth mindset’ in teaching and parenting, and fundamentally changed our approaches to both. I shared a story yesterday morning with faculty about how, having grown up in Los Angeles, I might see a movie star in the market and shrug. But then I join a call with today’s presenters, and hear Dr. Dweck’s voice, and think things like “I’ll never wash this phone again.” -CT
