So many of the moments that change us are surprise moments.
Have you ever had a spontaneous event define who you are? It’s possible you have and you just didn’t recognize it.
Our guest explains how we can use neuroscience to trigger growth mindsets in the classroom and ultimately enrich the lives of our students.
Dr. Michael Rousell is a psychologist and associate professor at Southern Oregon University and he’s spent years studying how spontaneous events can change the way we believe and see ourselves.
In Episode 126, Rousell teaches us how educators can give their students a burst of dopamine by combining surprise with positive reinforcement. If done properly, the results can have long-lasting positives effects on the way students perceive themselves.
