Teaching & Learning Seminar Series
How Stereotype Threat, Impostor Syndrome, and Growth Mindset Affect Student Learning
For all interested individuals.
Friday, February 28, 2020
Lurie Engineering Center, Johnson Rooms
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, impostor syndrome, and encouraging a growth mindset for students in their classes.
