Workshop: Bias and Stereotyping on Teams: Session #1: Asset Mapping Tools for more Equitable and Effective Teamwork

Wednesday, July 31, 2019
11:00 am to 12:30 pm
Floor/Room #: 
Mid-Century Room

This workshop discusses issues of bias and stereotyping on student teams and shares some data collected over three years at WPI about the impact this has on student learning. We then introduce asset-based tools we have developed, tested, and continue to revise that aim to address and reduce bias and stereotyping on student teams. Participants will engage with asset mapping tools, as their students would, by filling out asset maps, sharing their maps with others, and using them to divide up project work. Faculty, staff, and students welcome.
