Language Lounge: Growth Mindset and Self-Motivation (For Graduate Students)
This is the third of four sessions in a yearlong conversation around Metacognition: Becoming Expert Language Learners. We encourage you to attend any or all of these sessions!
In this session, we’ll explore through the lens of growth mindset how issues of identity (e.g. novice or beginner, native speaker or non-native speaker, etc.) factor into the motivations and roadblocks students face and how to support students through these hurdles to maximize equity in the classroom.
In the next session, we will concentrate on students’ reflection and language practice. How do we cultivate student-driven habits of practicing language skills beyond class time?
This session is facilitated by Ian Althouse, Center for Teaching and Learning. Lunch provided.
