Blind Spots: Implicit Bias in the Classroom - Ms. Jaime Nebbitt
Implicit Bias or Unconscious bias is the stereotyping and prejudice that guides our preference for a social group that is often automatic. Implicit bias is ubiquitous in society, and shaped by individual’s experiences, perceptions, and upbringing, everyone has some form of unconscious bias. Recent studies have shown that this bias also exist in educators, and that can have significant impact on students achievement and success. This session will introduce participants to case studies, challenge participants to explore their own unconscious bias, and then we will have discussion around approaches that may assist educators to become conscious of their biases, and how they may be able to remedy them for the benefit of the students.
