GTA Brown Bag: Diversity in the Classroom: Understanding the Impact of Cognitive Bias

Presented by Jennifer Almquist, Interim Associate Director for Equity and Inclusion Programs and Initiative, and Roni Sue, Equal Opportunity Associate

Tuesday, January 31, 2012 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM

While an increasingly diverse student population contributes to the creation of vibrant and engaging learning environments, the dynamics of diversity in the classroom can also lead to challenging situations, particularly for less experienced instructors. This session will focus specifically on exploring the ways that cognitive biases may be expressed in the learning environment and the influence such biases can have on classroom interactions. The session will also help participants identify strategies for mitigating the effects of cognitive bias through various classroom management strategies.
