Webinar, Addressing microaggressions in the classroom
September 29 @ 3:10 pm - 4:00 pm
Whether conscious of it or not, instructors and students bring most of who they are to the learning environment, including their biases and stereotypes. Biases can emerge as (micro)aggressions during class discussions, student-student interactions during group or lab work, or between students and instructors. If left unaddressed, biases and microaggressions negatively impact the learning climate and hurt students’ engagement, sense of belonging, and academic success. As a result of participating in this webinar, you will receive strategies to respond to microaggressions in the learning environment. To do this, we will explain the concept of microaggression while identifying examples of microaggressions. Then, explore and share strategies for us to respond more effectively to microaggressions. We will use the Addressing microaggressions in the classroom page to guide our discussion.
Note: This webinar is an opportunity to extend your knowledge about teaching inclusively and not a substitute for the annual inclusive classroom training.
