    Shift Happens: Integrating Growth Mindset into Courses and Students

    Kathy Jackson

    with students in the classroom. It starts with ourselves
    understanding how our brains work and how we view learning, our

    growth and the Power of Yet.

    What can we learn from highly resilient individuals that will help
    inform our work with students?
