April 22, 2015: How can I mitigate stereotype threat and impostor syndrome?
12:00-1:30pm in Faculty Commons – Pearson Hall 116
Stereotype threat and impostor syndrome refer to internalized, negative intellectual ideas that can lead to poor academic performance of minorities (e.g., a student of color, a first-generation student, or a woman in a male-dominated field). This TLC will consider how instructors can work against these phenomena and help all students succeed.
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.
