In The News: Department Happenings

Assistant Professor and Principle Investigator (PI), Dr. Alicia Emerson, along with co-PIs Drs. Jeff Taylor and Angela Gisselman, have been awarded a $6500 HPU Growth Mindset Grant. The two year grant will support an exploratory mixed methods study to examine constructs that contribute to graduate students’ growth mindset in a flipped classroom/active learning pedagogy (APL). It is hoped that the study will help identify students who have a fixed mindset so that targeted growth mindset strategies can be implemented to improve the successful integration of APL throughout DPT curricula.
