Help: Learning Mindset


A TasTAFE vocational education and preparation teacher recently held a session on mindset. It was well received among staff and students so we have created this page to reflect the information that was shared.

The growth or learning mindset concept is based on the work of Dr Carol Dweck. She holds the view that talents and abilities can be improved through effort, practice and persistence. You don't need raw talent to be successful, you just have to work hard and not be afraid to fail.
