What do I do in the Moment? Addressing Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, & Justice Issues in Teaching
Encountering racism, implicit bias and microaggressions in the classroom presents an opportunity for discussion and learning; however, it can be challenging to know how to address the comments in the moment. The aim of the workshop is to create a space for dialog and sharing strategies for addressing these issues in the moment, as well as how to move forward with a continued discussion if needed. In this workshop, we will begin with guiding principles for addressing racism in the classroom, and then move into a community centered conversation on identifying and addressing both subtle and more blatant forms of racism in the classroom through the use of case studies.
By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Recognize microaggressions and subtle forms of racism.
- Reflect on the variety of viewpoints and perspectives on how fellow workshop participants react to racism in the classroom.
- Identify strategies and classroom policies they will use in their teaching to explicitly address racism.
