Understanding Bias in the Classroom: Language, Microaggressions, and Social Justice

Presenters: Andrew Stewart, Associate Professor, Psychology

Whether we intend to or not, the impact of our actions in the classroom may impede academic performance and sense of belonging of minoritized students. In this session, we will examine how language communicates our biases and its impact as microaggressions using research from psychology. We will also explore how implicit and explicit biases affect our verbal and nonverbal behavior in different ways and how these biases adversely impact minoritized students, even if we do not intend to. The session also includes activities to examine our own biases and learn how to prevent them.
