An implicit bias refers to a prejudice we are unaware of holding. While we might believe we are objective, research shows that each of us brings a lifetime of experience and cultural history into our interactions with others.
Two of the most common issues — retention and academic development — affect all students.
This course will introduce you to insights about how our minds operate and help you understand the origins of implicit associations. You will also uncover some of your own biases and learn strategies for addressing them. Each module is divided into a short series of lessons, many taking less than 10 minutes to complete. That way, even if you’re pressed for time, you can complete the lessons and modules at your convenience.
We are excited that you are starting this process to explore implicit bias and what its operation means for your decisions and actions. Thank you for joining us!
