Promoting Self- Efficacy and Growth Mindset in Students

Promoting Self- Efficacy and Growth Mindset in Students

‘Self- belief does not necessarily ensure success, but self-disbelief assuredly spawns failure’ - Albert Bandura The beliefs that we have in our own abilities (known as self-efficacy beliefs) play a powerful role in our resilience, well-being, and growth towards reaching our potential. There are many ways to increase self-efficacy, including developing a growth mindset (Dweck, 2012). Growth mindset is the understanding that our talents and abilities are not fixed, but that they can be developed through effort, practice, and persistence. This talk will explore both concepts and show how they are linked, as well as providing practical suggestions for developing self-efficacy and growth mindset, both in ourselves and in our students. For teachers (primary & post-primary) & SNAs
