The Impact of Unconscious Bias – a Workshop for Students
November 11 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
The workshop would be very beneficial for apprentices and students who go on work placement or indeed all student groups as it is such an important topic for them to be aware of. It is open to any student groups across the CUA/St. Angela’s College. The workshop will also be recorded should any lecturers wish to distribute it or use it again for their class groups.
This workshop has been organised with the support of CELT and is being funded by the National Forum for VIT&L (valuing Ireland’s teaching and learning) week.
The impact of unconscious bias?
Unconscious biases impact all of us and form part of how we think. Most people are not fully aware of how bias may affect how they perceive and think about other people. Bias will affect perception, attitudes and behaviour towards others and some of this behaviour can be quite subtle. The aim of this workshop will be to allow students to understand how their brain works in terms of how they make decisions and think about other people. They will understand how bias occurs in all of us and recognise the impact of any associated behaviours. They will be able to name and recognise common biases and hopefully get some a-ha moments in recognising their own unconscious biases or unseen barriers to inclusive cultures and how we interact with others.
This workshop will explore what inclusivity look like and how to mitigate some of the behaviours and blockers to being inclusive, and to manage the impact of unconscious biases.
