Understanding How Stereotype Threat and Growth Mindset Affect Student Learning
Research shows that when students worry about fulfilling a negative stereotype related to certain social identities, it can hurt their learning (a phenomenon known as stereotype threat). Research also shows that an instructor’s beliefs about their own and their students’ intelligence and ability impact the classroom environment. In this interactive session, participants will reflect on instructor and student social identities and learn about strategies for mitigating stereotype threat and encouraging a growth mindset for students in their classes.
Please note that this session will take place on north campus in the Duderstadt Center.
This session is part of the Inclusive Teaching @ Michigan series. Please see the full listing of series events here.
