2018 Tapia Conference

What Would You Say if… Responding to Microaggressions, Bias, and Other Nonsense

Thursday, September 20, 2018 — 11:00AM-12:30PM



The workshop seeks to help attendees create a more inclusive environment by building their capacity to address and respond to bias in their environments. In this interactive session, attendees will learn strategies for responding to bias in their settings and advocate for diversity initiatives. Attendees will then practice those strategies in small groups. This will be facilitated by playing two rounds of a research-based game learning approach developed by the NSF project CSTeachingTips.org (#1339404), which has been tested in group of 200 teaching assistants and at the Special Interest Group for Computer Science Education (SIGCSE). This is the sixth iteration of the game-learning approach and all attendees will receive a printed copy of the game and a link to download and print more copies.

Presenters:

Catherine Ashcraft, National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT)
