Understanding How Stereotype Threat, Impostor Syndrome, and Growth Mindset Affect Student Learning (Inclusive Teaching @ Michigan Series)
This session is full.
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 the ways instructor language and behaviors can mitigate stereotype threat, combat impostor syndrome, and encourage a growth mindset for themselves and students in their classes.
