2019 Tapia Conference

Recognizing and Responding to Bias and Microaggressions

Friday, September 20, 2019 — 2:30PM - 3:30PM


Unfortunately, the work of advocating for diversity and addressing biased statements often falls on people from minoritized or marginalized groups. The workshop seeks to help Tapia attendees build their capacity to recognize and respond to bias in their environments. Attendees will learn and practice strategies for addressing biased statements. This will be facilitated by playing four rounds of a research-based game learning approach developed by the NSF funded project CSTeachingTips.org (1339404, 1821136). All attendees will receive a printed copy of the game and a link to download and print more copies. A version of this workshop was well attended and well received in previous years at SIGCSE and Tapia.
