« back to classes page
Microaggressions have been defined as “brief and commonplace daily verbal, behavioral, or environmental indignities.” While they may not result in formal complaints or lawsuits, they do have consequences when it comes to morale, engagement, and retention. This session will explore the concept of Microagressions and will help participants identify effective strategies to prevent and interrupt these indignities when they arise in the workplace.

Learning objectives:
 
•     Reflect on and confront their own beliefs and assumptions about inclusion and about students of different identities;
•     Examine the role of microaggressions and institutional bias, and how these dynamics impact teaching, learning, and achievement; and
•     Identify strategies for creating more supportive learning environments.
