In this episode of a Seat at the Table, Carol Dweck and Peter DeWitt will discuss the nuances of the growth mindset, arguably one of the most familiar phrases and focal points of educational research. Join the conversation to explore why her research is sometimes misunderstood and how to get it right.

Carol Dweck
Lewis and Virginia Eaton Professor and Professor of Psychology, Stanford University
Carol Dweck is Professor of Psychology at Stanford University. For four decades, her research has focused on why students succeed and how to foster their success. In particular, she has examined the effects of holding a “growth mindset”—the belief that intellectual abilities can be developed—on students’ engagement and achievement. She and her colleagues are now studying how educators can best create growth mindset cultures in their classrooms.

She has won more than a dozen lifetime achievement awards for her research, mentoring, and broader contributions and she has been elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and to the National Academy of Sciences. Her book Mindset has been translated into over 25 languages.
Peter DeWitt is a former K-5 public school principal turned author, presenter, and leadership coach.
