Texas Mindset Initiative
The Texas Behavioral Science and Policy Institute at the University of Texas at Austin is looking for a dedicated, detailed-oriented, and trustworthy individuals to help manage and direct our large-scale research projects and a growing diverse team of researchers involved in exciting and cutting-edge mindset science research that has the potential to reduce inequality in education.
Published in Nature (twice!), mindset science is leading the way in helping adolescents and educators navigate the transition to high school and postsecondary education in STEM classrooms and help foster an inclusive climate that helps people learn better. Join us in exploring new frontiers in behavioral science, education reform, and psychology.
The Texas Mindset Initiative (TxMI) is a first-of-its-kind statewide fellowship to foster a supportive and inclusive learning classroom climate by developing & testing evidence-based and innovative teacher training programs. TxMI will empower teachers to learn from a collaborative network of seasoned educators and researchers and enable them to modify their classroom practices via rapid, continual improvement practices. The fellowship will create teacher professional development products that drastically improve student academic outcomes and focus on solutions that narrow equity gaps based on race, gender, and social class, have the potential to scale up, and are very low-cost to improve the chances of implementation in school districts. We strongly believe that our approach of co-developing educational practices with lived realities of teachers that struggle to navigate the challenges of the ever-changing world of STEM education will result in actionable insights that are scalable, cost-effective, and rigorously tested in academic settings for creating highly-engaging teacher practices.
