Implicit Bias: Challenges and Gifts in Dance Education
Facilitated by Crystal U. Davis
DATE AND TIME:
Friday, February 9th from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. AND
Saturday, February 10th from 9:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
The Summit this year will take place over two days. We encourage you to register for both days if possible, to take advantage of this time to work with Crystal. However, if your schedule will only allow you to join us for one day, you are still more than welcome to attend. Each day we will cover different content, and each session will give you a unique set of tools, strategies and experiences to take into your teaching practice.
ABOUT THE SUMMIT: This workshop series is an introduction to what implicit bias is, how it relates to and manifests in our work in the field of dance education, and how we might combat its effects in our work. It is the result of research conducted on the question, “How do our implicit biases affect how we perceive, support, assess, and embody human movement?” Come together with a community of educators to create community, examine implicit bias, explore methods and practices, and dance together. While the focus of this workshop is primarily racial bias, it also provides resources to support dance educator examination of other ways in which educators may carry biases in our work. Crystal U. Davis will support us as we work together to be more inclusive teachers.
By the end of the this workshop series, participants will be able to:
- Articulate what implicit bias is, its manifestations, and feeders.
- Develop methods to modify classroom teaching strategies, content, and environment to reduce the negative effects of bias
- Establish sustainable practices and strategies for collegial and student supports to deepen an understanding of teacher and student implicit biases
