Educational Talk on 'Growth Mindset'

Mindset 1A talk for Dharamshala parents, Is your child having the right mindset for learning? was held on October 28 at Tibetan Childrens Village Day School in McLeod Ganj, organised by Lha in collaboration with the Parents and Teachers Association of Petoen School, and McleodTCV Day School Parents Association.

The speaker was Mr Gyaltsen, the former Education Officer at the Department of Education, Central Tibetan Administration. The primary aim of the workshop was to inform parents about ways in which they can support their children with learning,and how to develop a growth mindset in your child.

Mindset 2Mr Gyaltsen spoke on the importance of a student's background and socioeconomic status in determining their educational outcome as every child has a different family background. He added that parents and children should encourage a "growth mindset" rather than a "fixed mindset". He also spoke of the importance of encouraging children for their effort as intelligence can grow with hard work.

His talk was followed by a lively question and answer session with the 50 or so parents at the workshop."This was a great learning session for me as a parent, I realised there are many things that I was doing wrong for my kids even though my intensions are good", said one attendee.

Mr Gyaltsenhas an MPhil from the University of Cambridge and EdM from Columbia University. With many years of teaching experience, he has done extensive research on teachers' attitudes towards ability grouping in aTibetan school context. Currently he is volunteering at Lha Charitable Trust.
