Cultivating a Growth Mindset Institute - Spring 2017

The Institute is provided in a sequence of three drive-in, all-day meetings to be held at Lane Community College in Eugene. Participants have committed to attend on all three dates:

March 10, 2017
April 14, 2017
May 19, 2017

This institute presents strategies to implement research-based growth mindset practices to improve student learning for community college students. Over a series of studies, these practices have been shown to improve student learning strategies and help students respond to challenge. Although research demonstrates that growth mindset changes student behavior and improves student success, scant research examines specific practices and approaches for the classroom and beyond.

Trauma Informed Learning Workshop - January 27, 2017

The need to identify, address and provide resources for trauma-informed learning in higher education is gaining momentum as awareness of the impact of developmental trauma on adult learning comes into greater focus. Faculty members have the unique opportunity to assist these learners who often feel displaced and outside of the typical learning process and help them anchor and engage in the classroom in ways that allow them to persist and attain their educational goals. Below are resources shared during a faculty workshop on January 27, 2017, which explored the differences between shock trauma and developmental trauma, how to identify developmental trauma in students, and how to implement trauma-aware strategies in the classroom. Also included is a video from the workshop of a panel of students who shared their experiences and insights as learners with developmental trauma.
