In order to be successful at the University level, students need to be able to persist in the face of difficulty, learn from their mistakes, and recognize the value of multiple attempts at difficult tasks. However, many of our students haven’t yet developed this ability. So how can we help them become more adept at working through and overcoming challenges in our courses? In this workshop, participants will learn what research has to say about how students become more persistent in their approach to learning and will practice strategies for framing the work in our courses in ways that help students develop these crucial habits of mind.
