Workshops Teach Tools to Improve Student Success

Dr. Marianne Auten uses the work of renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck on Mindset to clearly link motivation and resiliency to student success. Dr. Auten will facilitate two workshops June 12 at Central Washington University to provide educators and anyone who works with students new tools and strategies for improving goal achievement and grit.

The first session, from 2-3:15 p.m., is titled “The Optimal Mindset: Who Achieves Goals and Why.” The science and relationship of mindset to goal achievement will be discussed, and tools for shifting mindset for more successful goal setting and attainment will be shared.

The second session, “Got Grit? Start With Mindset,” runs from 3:30-4:45 p.m. Participants will learn simple, proven strategies that foster mindset and self-regulation skills, leading to increased success.

Both workshops will be held in the Wellington Event Center on the CWU campus, are free and open to the public. Dr. Auten's visit to CWU is sponsored by Student Achievement.
