In this workshop, we will discuss what microaggressions are, examples of microaggressions in the teaching and learning context, and strategies for how to intervene when you experience or witness microaggressions. During this 90-minute workshop, participants will engage in a discussion reflecting on their role, potential to respond, and commitments they will take to challenge their own biases and interrupt microaggressions in their everyday lives. Facilitators will offer support and resources for navigating and interrupting microaggressions.
