Reducing Unconscious Bias & Micro-Aggressions in the Classroom: Friday, Oct 7, 9-10:30 am, RSVP required
Given increasingly diverse classrooms, how can faculty and instructors reduce unconscious bias and micro-aggressions? Unconscious bias is pervasive, with nearly all people displaying unintended biases towards certain groups. After a brief introduction to the research, we will consider strategies for addressing students’ unconscious biases and micro-aggressions and offer teaching and assessment strategies that reduce the impact of our own unconscious biases.
