Race and Ethnicity and Disability Training

THIS TRAINING HAS BEEN CANCELLED. Amid concern over coronavirus(COVID-19) and social distancing recommendations this training has been cancelled. This training may be rescheduled, if possible. Please watch your home email for future training announcements.

In this course, participants develop an understanding of

  1. How our beliefs, values, and experiences inform implicit biases related to race and ethnicity; and
  2. How our implicit biases and behaviors impact others (students, colleagues, families, etc.).

Participants examine how implicit bias and microaggressions can impact the success of students regardless of the positive intent of adults or other students for the purpose of closing the opportunity gap and improving student achievement.

During the other portion of this course, participants focus on implicit bias and microaggressions related to disabilities. They also work on framing a new way to think of ableism and the impact of visible and invisible ability issues in the classroom and workplace. This is especially important for educators working with student typical “deficit model.” Participants will learn to engage students and provide a safe, positive learning environment for the purpose of empowering students to achieve their full academic potential.
