identity, motivation, stereotype threat: how do they matter for learning?
Tuesday, February 18, 2014, 5:00 pm to 7:30 pm
CERAS Learning Hall (CERAS 101), 520 Galvez Mall, Lobby Level
Social psychologists have learned a lot about how students' sense of who they are and what is expected of them greatly influence academic achievement. This panel assembles leading lights to offer insight on the latest research in this field, and cutting-edge ideas about how digital technology might help or hinder educational ambitions. This event is co-sponsored by the Workshop on Poverty, Inequality, and Education and Education’s Digital Future.
The panel includes:
Claude Steele, Dean of Stanford’s Graduate School of Education, studies stereotype threat and its application to minority student academic performance.
Carol Dweck, Professor at Stanford University, studies the self-conceptions (or mindsets) people use to structure the self and guide their behavior.
Geoff Cohen, Professor at Stanford University, studies processes related to identity maintenance and their implications for social problems.
Moderated by Deborah Stipek, Professor at Stanford University, who studies instructional effects on children's achievement motivation, early childhood education, elementary education, and school reform.
