This course synthesises the pedagogical factors that most impact learning, distilling the work of Hattie, Dweck, Deci & Ryan, Ericsson, Csikszentmihalyi, Harvard Project Zero, and other notable educational psychologists. We explore a synthesis of mindset, motivation & metacognition that challenges capped-potential self-conceptions. Teachers must understand the impact their beliefs, words and actions have on cultivating the learning disposition of students. Teacher mindsets result in expectations impacting student achievement. Metacognitive teaching has the greatest effect on learning, granting freedom of the mind. But how is it taught?
