This paper introduces a new pedagogical approach that we will refer to as the MIND-methodology, which incorporates aspects of the individual’s mindset. The novel pedagogical approach includes four building blocks; theory practice, mindset and engagement-and-networking. The MIND-methodology is based on accepted pedagogical theories and known psychological aspects: social learning, communities of practice, and fixed and growth mindset. The novelty of the methodology lies in its clear student-centered approach and its focus on the student’s mindset.
