This learning event is right for you if you are an educator wanting your students to progress on the continuum toward a Growth Mindset.
Growth Mindset is not something students either have or don’t have. It is a continuum of skills and attitudes that teachers can guide students in developing.
In this free and insightful 45-minute webinar, James Anderson will explore the Growth Mindset Continuum and how you can support students to move toward becoming more agile learners. He’ll outline the different stages along the continuum and explore the power of teaching for a growth mindset instead of about a growth mindset.
All participants will receive a copy of James Anderson’s white paper Learner Agency - a guide for school leaders.
This learning event supports creating best practice toward meeting the following VRQA standard(s):
- Curriculum and Student Learning – Student learning outcomes
- Curriculum and Student Learning – Monitoring and reporting on students’ performance
- The minimum standards for schools offering a senior secondary course – Student learning outcomes

Later, as a school leader, he spearheaded a national research project focused on infusing Art Costa and Bena Kallick’s Habits of Mind into schools and classrooms. He is a Certified Speaking Professional (CSP), presenting around Australia and overseas. As an author, he has published Succeeding with Habits of Mind and The Agile Learner, as well as numerous e-books. He has published with Art Costa and Bena Kallick Learning and Leading with Habits of Mind and Habits of Mind Across the Curriculum. His regular blogs are also read by thousands of educators around the world.
