 ‘Optimizing your potential through a Growth Mindset’, a lecture by renowned mathematician Prof. Kirti Premadasa organised by the United States-Sri Lanka Fulbright Commission, will be held from 6.00 to 7.30 p.m. on July 3 (Tuesday) at the United States-Sri Lanka Fulbright Commission Auditorium at its new location at 55 Abdul Caffoor Mawatha, Colombo 3 (off Duplication Road, next to Stone & String).

Is a person’s intelligence fixed? Can one enhance ability? Comprehensive education research done in the United States and world over conclusively shows that intelligence and ability can be enhanced by adapting a Growth Mindset Framework in contrast to a fixed mindset. This talk will describe what a Growth Mindset is, explain its mechanism, provide proof of its success and offer activities and tips towards mindset conversion. The talk will also provide some tips and will be useful for parents, students and professionals who wish to optimize their own (or their children’s potential) for success in life. 

 
Prof. Premadasa is a Professor of Mathematics at University of Wisconsin-Platteville. He obtained his PhD from Purdue University USA. He has over 24 years of teaching experience both in the University of Wisconsin System and at the University of Colombo. This year, he was the recipient of the University of Wisconsin System’s Regents Teaching Excellence Award. This prestigious award is the highest teaching recognition in the system that recognizes two faculty members selected from over 3000 others of all 27 universities of the University of Wisconsin System. He has an impressive number of peer-reviewed publications and presentations in Mathematics and College Education. He is currently in Sri Lanka as a United States Fulbright Specialist.
