Stereotype Threat & Identity Threat: The Science of a Diverse Community with Dr. Claude M. Steele
Date: Thursday, October 4, 2018
Time: 11-12 p.m.
Location: South Seattle College, Jerry Brockey Student Center, Rooms A & B (campus map)
Drawing on stereotype threat and social identity threat research, join Dr. Claude M. Steele, Professor of Psychology at Stanford University, as we address the why, what, and how of diverse learning communities; why they are important, a working hypothesis about what is critical to their success and what research reveals about how to achieve that success. The talk’s practical aim is to identify features of diverse learning communities — schools, universities, and academic disciplines — that while good for all students, are especially helpful for minority students generally, and for women in STEM fields. The talk will also explore the psychological significance of community and its role in learning.
