FALL 2018 CITLA Workshops

Unconscious (Implicit) Bias in the Classroom: Why it Matters

Presenter: Justine Egan-Kunicki, Assistant Professor, Psychology

Thursday, October 25, 2018, 1:00 - 2:00pm, Knight Campus, Room 5579, 2nd Floor Library RSVP HERE

We all have biases, so to be the best instructors we can be, we have to reflect on how our unconscious (implicit) attitudes influence our work with our students. Unconscious (implicit) bias consists of attitudes and beliefs we have about specific groups of people which can impact our everyday behavior. In this brown bag session we will discuss what unconscious bias is, how we can identify our own biases, and how those biases can specifically influence our work with students inside and outside of the classroom. We will end by discussing strategies to help combat unconscious biases so we can work to provide a classroom environment in which all of our students can thrive.


Fridays, 2:15 - 3:45, Room 5579 Knight Library RSVP HERE
