Staff Changing Mindsets Workshop

Changing Mindsets is a HEFCE funded project focused on closing the attainment gap of Black Minority Ethnic (BME) and socio-economically disadvantaged students. The Changing Mindsets intervention was developed in 2012 by Professor Sherria Hoskins, Dean of Science and is based on Professor Carol Dweck’s Implicit Theories of Intelligence. HEFCE Changing Mindsets includes student and staff workshops that build a growth mindset and an understanding of the interaction between stereotype threat and implicit bias and mindsets.
