Abstract/Description

Kennedy Union 211

Two faculty teaching the same course, Racial & Ethnic Relations, using the same readings and lecture material, yet received very different student responses. The main difference? The race of the professor. In this session, we explore the implicit and explicit biases in the classroom, and the implications for these biases. We also examine what the University of Dayton can do to address racial bias in teaching assessment, from raising awareness (for hiring, promotion, and retention) to reconceptualizing how we assess teaching.

Goals for Attendees

Understand racial dynamics; implicit bias that may be present in all teaching, which has implications for hiring, promotion, and retention; provide alternative considerations for classroom evaluation.
