Instructors as Meaning-Makers: Growth Mindset Messages that Support Stigmatized Students

In this talk, Dr. Elizabeth Canning, Assistant Professor in the Psychology Department at Washington State University, will discuss her recent research on cultivating growth mindset cultures in the classroom—the idea that anyone can develop their abilities over time with good strategies, hard work, and seeking help. Three empirical studies suggest that growth mindset messages from instructors inspire motivation and promote performance for racial minorities, women in STEM, and first-generation college students. Discussion will center on evidenced-based, practical strategies that instructors can implement in their classes to narrow performance gaps and support stigmatized students.
