Spring 2-8-2024


During this lunch discussion, we invite you to explore possibilities for including elements of growth mindset, metacognition, and Bloom's Taxonomy in your courses this semester and beyond. We will draw on a variety of resources, including Carol Dweck's articulation of mindsets, Stephen Chew's concrete suggestions to support metacognition, and Saundra McGuire's framework for connecting mindset, metacognition and Bloom's. Mike Pinter (Teaching Center and Mathematics), Jennifer Thomas (Biology) and George Shannon (Music) will present and facilitate conversation. The session will include time for questions, discussion, and classroom ideas from participants.
