Those of us engaged in the work of addressing identity in the classroom by discussing issues related to race, gender, age, ability, religion, class, sexual identity, and culture have, at some point, encountered unconscious bias in the form of microaggressions. Even though the harm may have been unintended, the impact is surely felt. This webinar provides strategies to help educators keep difficult conversations from derailing or shutting down altogether by asking important questions that get at the root of thoughts, explore feelings, weigh the impact of words, and repair harm in the moment.

She is a culturally responsive teaching practitioner whose research focuses on teaching through the lens of dignity. Her current work, Teaching with Dignity, is a hybrid professional development course that helps faculty close opportunity gaps by providing strategies that allow students to be seen, heard, valued, and feel safe, thus optimizing learning, retention, and success. Andrea is a contributing author to the book, Defining, Locating, and Addressing Bullying in the WPA Workplace. Her chapter, entitled “Breaking the Silence of Racism and Bullying in Academia: Leaning in to a Hard Truth,” explores storytelling as a vehicle for healing, understanding, and change.
