The Teaching Assistant Program within the Graduate School invites TAs/graduate students to participate in a workshop series developed by School of Education Professors Jeff Mangram and Melissa Luke. These workshops are part of the university commitment to professional development opportunities related to diversity, belonging, inclusion and equity offered throughout the academic year.
This two-part workshop series is designed to support participants’ exploration of a) the role that socialization and identity play in how we view ourselves and others, b) the relationship between bias, stereotype, prejudice and discrimination and c) ways to identify and disrupt various forms of microaggression that arise in educational contexts.
The two workshops are inter-related, but not sequential. They have been intentionally designed so that TAs/graduate students can attend starting with any of the sessions and proceed with the remaining workshops.
