As educators, sometimes we don’t realize that our implicit biases play a critical role in how students see themselves in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). Join WISEST in this session where we’ll talk about how to recognize our own implicit biases, how to address them, and we’ll explore ways educators can challenge long held views that hold a masculine, heteronormative and eurocentric perspective in the effort to help promote equity, diversity and inclusion in the classroom. Session is open to educators who work with junior high to high school students.Teachers will get a basic introduction to teaching strategies that help promote equity, diversity and inclusion in their science classrooms. Teachers will learn how to address their own implicit biases, and how we can make conscious decisions to make our science classrooms more inclusive.
