Interrupting Bias in Classroom Conversations

Oct 13, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

This workshop explores how various forms of bias impact class dynamics and discussions, and helps instructors develop knowledge and skills for interrupting microaggressions and bias and managing hot moments in the classroom. Participants practice recognizing intent versus impact, as well as a variety of concrete tools for troubleshooting friction in the classroom–and walk away with a deeper understanding of how bias affects both students and instructors. This workshop was developed by the Center for the Advancement of Teaching and will be jointly facilitated by CAT and EPIC staff.

When: Thursday, October 13 at 12:00 to 2:00 PM. Lunch will be available to pick up at 11:30 am at the Powell courtyard.

Where: Powell 186. Enter the building from the east (the doors facing Kaplan) or  the south (the doors facing Physics and Astronomy and Moore Halls).

How: Please RSVP using this form by Monday, October 10

CONTENT WARNING: This workshop includes small and large group discussion of several case studies involving incidents of oppressive language, microaggression, and other forms of bias. If you have questions/concerns about the structure or content of the workshop, please email bgoodhue@teaching.ucla.edu. We will be happy to work with you to address your concerns.
