Helping Students See Themselves As Belonging in Your Field
This workshop is part of the Inclusive Teaching series. A “sense of belonging” can be crucial in determining whether students decide to pursue a career in their field of interest. However, some students may face more struggles than others in certain environments. This workshop will discuss how to cultivate a sense of belonging among students of all academic and social backgrounds. Stereotype threat may be one of the challenges that can affect performance in the classroom, and we will briefly discuss strategies on how to mitigate it. In addition, we will talk about ways to facilitate conversation in the classroom that invite all perspectives to make students feel like they have the ability to be successful.
