Understanding and Addressing Microaggressions in the Classroom
Thursday, March 26th, 2020
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Lunch will be provided
Microaggressions are defined as brief and commonplace verbal, behavioral, and environmental slights or insults that communicate hostile messages. These messages, whether intentional or unintentional, can marginalize a student by communicating that they don’t belong in a particular setting. In this faculty workshop, participants will learn how to recognize the different types of microaggressions, understand the harmful messages they send, and learn positive communication frameworks that interrupt microaggressions.
Facilitator: Dr. Denise Leonard, Associate Director, Academic Services, The Center for Teaching and Learning
