What Are the 7 Mind Frames of Learning?

What Are the 7 Mind Frames of Learning? | Faculty Professional Development | Scoop.it

'Learning thrives on error'

"Among all the influences that can make a profound difference in student learning is how we think about our role!  So, start with looking inward and ask about the mind frames you have as an educator. 

It is through these mind frames that we make decisions in the classroom and school, and it is argued that educators highly imbued with these mind frames are among the high impact educators."


Via Beth Dichter
Rosemary Tyrrell, Ed.D.'s insight:

This is a great article and seems to be based on the same ideas that Carol Dwek's Mindset relies on. Worth a read.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 15, 2014 6:18 PM

Teachers need to recast themselves as learners alongside students. The days of the expert are behind us despite the advent of TED talks and other media where we still seem to think the sage on the stage is the way to impart knowledge, wisdom, and truth. There are moments for that, but learning is very relational, contingent, contextual, and personal.

I like the approach of "walking in their shoes" to describe how educators effect an interest in learning.

Student Evaluations of Teaching (Mostly) Do Not Measure Teaching Effectiveness 

Student Evaluations of Teaching (Mostly) Do Not Measure Teaching Effectiveness  | Faculty Professional Development | Scoop.it
Student evaluations of teaching (SET) are widely used in academic personnel decisions as a measure of teaching effectiveness. We show: SET are biased against female instructors by an amount that is large and statistically significant. The bias affects how students rassignments are graded. The bias varies by discipline and by student gender, among other things. It is not possible to adjust for the bias, because it depends on so many factors. SET are more sensitive to students’ gender bias and grade expectations than they are to teaching effectiveness. Gender biases can be large enough to cause more effective instructors to get lower SET than less effective instructors. These findings are based on nonparametric statistical tests applied to two datasets: 23,001 SET of 379 instructors by 4,423 students in six mandatory first-year courses in a five-year natural experiment at a French university, and 43 SET for four sections of an online course in a randomized, controlled, blind experiment at a US university.

A must read for anyone interested in the validity of SETs.

Ways to Form Student Groups  

Ways to Form Student Groups   | Faculty Professional Development | Scoop.it
Forming teams can be a complicated process. Opinions about how to form groups are many and varied (e.g., Barkley et al., 2014; Barr, Dixon, & Gassenheimer, 2005; Davis, 2009; Johnson et al., 1998). There is very little empirical research, however, on which method best promotes student learning or enhances the learning experience. [Note 3] This section features four approaches ALC (Active Learning Classroom) instructors can use for group formation: random, instructor-generated, self-selected, and mixed. We will also present advantages and drawbacks to each approach.

Incorporating a Growth Mindset Into Your Teaching Practice

A growth mindset, as described by Carol Dweck, is a belief that while individuals are different in many ways in terms of their initial performance, interests, talents, and skills, everyone can improve, change, and grow through application and experience. We believe that one of the greatest school-based factors for improving education today is empowering educators with opportunities to develop a growth mindset by working together to build skills and strategies to increase the impact of their instruction in the classroom.

How to Manage the 4 Types of Teachers You Meet in Professional Development (EdSurge News)

How to Manage the 4 Types of Teachers You Meet in Professional Development (EdSurge News) | Faculty Professional Development | Scoop.it
In my heart, I will always be a middle school English Language Arts teacher. As I continue this path as a district administrator, I want to hold close to my heart the plight of the teacher: what it’s like to have to work all day with children and then go home and work on lessons, assessments, grading, etc. What it’s like to sit for hours in professional development sessions and be bored because you already know it or frustrated because it’s way over your head or not relevant to your grade level or content area.

So in my role, I find that it is imperative to provide Professional Learning (PL) opportunities that are relevant, on-going, and effective. In the article, I’m going to highlight the types of educators that we may encounter and ways to provide PL that is beneficial for all.
