Creating an Environment to Discuss Stereotypes in the Classroom

Tue, 29 Oct 2013 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM

Location: Taylor 304
Roundtable

Register


In this roundtable, Matthew Lee, Assistant Professor of Psychology, will lead the discussion of his teaching/research project on racial attitudes among students. The project looks at whether factual information on affirmative action, combined with other teaching interventions such as simulations, affects the racial attitudes of students, and how other factors interact with this relationship. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss teaching interventions as well as the measurement of student attitudes.

This roundtable is designed for faculty to make progress toward the following outcomes:

  • learn about and exchange ideas on scholarly work currently conducted at JMU;
  • discuss evidence-based strategies to measure stereotyping among students; and
  • exchange ideas on how to help students reduce stereotypes and to be more accepting of different perspectives.

Facilitator: Andreas Broscheid, Ph.D, Department of Political Science

Facilitator: Matt Lee, Ph.D, Department of Psychology
