Power and Microaggressions in the Classroom

This event has reached capacity and registration is closed.

This fall, we anticipate a higher likelihood of and increased intensity around politically charged moments in the classroom. These moments can impact the sense of belonging, as well as the capacity to learn and teach, of marginalized students, TAs, and faculty. 

This session is aimed at helping you develop and refine the skills needed to carefully respond to incidents of bias, racism, and insensitive comments in the moment they occur. You will work together to identify and anticipate critical moments, learn from role models, and use a framework for developing your own impromptu responses. Pre-readings will be emailed to enrolled participants the week of the session. These readings will help participants gain an understanding of microaggressions and the importance of intervening, allowing the session to focus on practicing and strategizing impromptu responses. This session will be highly interactive and involve small group work, and we welcome participants to arrive with their cameras on if they feel comfortable.

Facilitated by Rose Buckelew, Sociology and Cortney McEniry, UVA Acts.

Space is limited. Zoom links will be provided once you register, and reading material will be sent to all registrants prior to the meeting. For questions about registration, contact Claire Reeger at claire.reeger@virginia.edu.
