The objectives of this workshop will be to inform participants about the concepts of stereotype threat and implicit bias. Participants should feel more comfortable with the terms and be aware of some of the data behind the idea that stereotype threat can potentially lead to underperformance by students. Participants will also receive guidance on how to create an environment in the classroom where all students can reach their full potential.
It is our hope the participants completing the workshop would be enthusiastic about their classroom experience and how they will create this encouraging environment for every student. This workshop can also be thought of as a guide toward identifying and reducing stereotype threat and implicit bias in order to maximize student performance
This workshop aligns with the Inclusive Pedagogy domain of the teaching effectiveness framework. It counts as one workshop towards the Graduate Teaching Certificate.
This workshop is open to all CSU faculty, staff, and graduate students. Please bring your own lunch.
