Asbury, Kathryn; Klassen, Robert; Bowyer-Crane, Claudine; Kyriacou, Chris; Nash, Poppy – International Journal of School & Educational Psychology, 2016
A growth mindset has been found beneficial to students, particularly when they encounter academic setbacks (Dweck, 2000). Evidence suggests that teachers' own mindsets may influence those of their students. We assessed mindset among student teachers from different places of origin (UK and East Asia) in a UK university (N = 255). Although both…
