From Implicit to Explicit: Identity, & Power Dynamics in the Classroom
Friday, January 19
Science Center Room 418d

What assumptions do you have about students in your class? How can identities related to race, gender, class, sexuality, ability, and more affect classroom dynamics?

This session will begin with the Bok Center’s Undergraduate Pedagogy Fellows presenting an introduction to the multiplicity of Harvard undergraduate identities through both narratives and statistics. The Fellows will also offer an introduction to how power and privilege manifest within the classroom in the forms of microaggressions and "hot moments", and explain how students often wish TFs would deal with and work to prevent such moments. The session will conclude with a facilitated discussion of participants' own experiences identifying and dealing with classroom power dynamics. First-time and experienced teachers welcome.
