Pre-Conference Evening Lecture 2017 (#hudtec17)
Mindset and a layered pedagogy of teacher education: teacher educators, their trainees and their students
Thursday, 22 June, 2017 at the University of Huddersfield
Speaker profile - Dr Barry Hymer
Dr Barry Hymer has been interpreting and researching learning theory as it relates to classroom practice since he became a professional educator in 1983. Over this period he has acquired extensive experience in schools, initially as a primary and secondary school teacher, subsequently as an educational psychologist and since 2004 as an independent consultant, academic and researcher. He is now Emeritus Professor of Psychology in Education at the University of Cumbria in Lancaster. Having invested his “10 000 hours of purposeful practice”, Barry has an international reputation as an engaging and highly effective communicator. He is concerned always to relate evidence-based theory to classroom-based practice, and he has worked with many thousands of reflective educators in pursuit of this aim - often as part of extended action research projects.
Barry has particular interests and expertise in the related areas of motivation, mindset, talent development and independent learning. He has toured with Prof Carol Dweck during the summers of 2010, 2013, 2014 and 2016, speaking at packed conferences in England and abroad. Barry has created and leads the Osiris Mindset Programme – a one-year intervention aimed at introducing and embedding growth mindset practices in schools. His most recent books are a resource for pupils and teachers (Puffed Out, Hussey & Hymer, 2017), theGrowth Mindset Pocketbook (Hymer & Gershon, 2014) - which has become a bestseller in the education market, and Learning Teaching: Becoming an inspirational teacher (with Pete Boyd & Karen Lockney, 2015) – described by Prof John Hattie as “The perfect book for those who want to make the most of their opportunity to enhance students’ brain power.”
