Using Mindset to Improve Your Graduate Education Workshop
Carol Dweck’s concept of growth and fixed mindset is a powerful concept for graduate students to understand and utilize to fight imposter syndrome. Moreover, leveraging associated strategies can help graduate students overcome typical and sometimes inevitable challenges with all stages of graduate education. In this session, graduate students will be able to explain the basic concepts of mindset, identify how mindset impacts their daily lives, and identify strategies to use the concept of mindset to improve their graduate experience.
