Research Proposal / Learning Theories and Pedagogy

Abstract

Researchers suggest that students who hold a growth mindset show improvement and growth over the students who hold a fixed mindset (Dweck, 2008; O’Rourke, Haimovitz, Ballweber, Dweck, & Popovi´c, 2014). This qualitative study included 25 pre-service teachers and their perceptions themselves as learners, future teachers, and their beliefs on student learning after learning about a growth mindset. The results of this study suggest that pre-service teachers, after learning about a growth mindset, changed their perceptions about themselves as learners, as future teachers, and their perception of how they will teach students.
