Workshop: “Unmasking Stereotype Threat and Impostor Syndrome”
(open to faculty and students)
Instructors: Pamela Nolan Young, director for academic diversity and inclusion, and Dominique Vargas, graduate associate, ND Learning, Kaneb Center. Stereotype threat, a fear of fulfilling negative stereotypes related to social identities, triggers physiological and psychological processes that can disrupt learning. Impostor syndrome, the internalized doubt of proven abilities, is a common problem for graduate students. Research also shows that an instructor’s beliefs about their own and their students’ abilities impact the classroom environment. In this workshop we will review research and identify mindful, pedagogical practices to recognize and address the impact of these phenomena and their consequences to create a more equitable learning environment. Register here.
