An Asset-Based Approach to Teaching and Learning with Dr. Ilene Winokur

How do we create successful learners if we ignore their strengths (assets) and focus on their deficits?
We often hear about people who either believe the glass is half empty or half full. Have you ever heard that the glass can be refilled? How does changing our perception of learners from a deficit mindset (glass half-empty) to an asset-based mindset (glass can be refilled) improve how we perceive our students and how they perceive themselves? In this episode, I explain the importance of an asset-based mindset and approach on supporting a sense of safety and belonging in our students that is essential to their learning and achievement.
