March 25, 2015: What are micro-aggressions and how do they impact learning?
12:00-1:30pm in Faculty Commons – Pearson Hall 116
This TLC will explore how unintended discrimination hinders, hurts, silences, and disadvantages students (e.g., How might ascribing high mathematical achievement to all Asian students limit artistic creativity and aspirations among some?) It will also provide time to figure out ways to avoid this in the classroom.
Join us for facilitated discussions and lunch. We invite you to share your questions, challenges, and practices that succeed or flop to these open, collegial conversations. Faculty, Graduate TAs, Instructors, and all those who teach at UD are welcome. Please register.
