Understanding and Addressing Microaggressions in the Classroom
Tuesday, November 26th, 2019
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 Teaching Center
Registration will open two weeks prior to the workshop’s start date. For questions about the workshop, please contact Dr. Denise Leonard, Associate Director, Academic Services, The Teaching Center
