Carol Dweck to Speak in Evanston on May 9th

FAN, Family Action Network, has scheduled some wonderful speakers on the North Shore this year, including Carol Dweck, best-selling author of Mindset: The New Psychology of Success, who will be giving two talks on Friday, May 9th.  Dweck is the Lewis and Virginia Eaton Professor of Psychology at Stanford University.

Beginning at 4:30pm, Professor Dweck will speak on “Growth Mindsets and the Wholehearted Embrace of Process.” This talk will be geared towards educators and according to FAN, Prof. Dweck will discuss how a teacher’s enthusiastic and devoted focus on the learning process cultivates a growth mindset in students.  At 7:00 in the evening, she will be speaking on “Go for It: Risk-taking, Challenge and the Value of a Growth Mindset.” 

Both talks will be held at Evanston Township High School auditorium, 1660 Dodge Avenue, Evanston. Co-sponsored by numerous local organizations and schools, they are free and open to the public and CPDUs will be available at both talks. 

For more information, FAN also suggests: Mindset Works Website -- Co-Founded by Dr. Dweck  which features this short video and others:
