This webinar will provide headteachers, deputy heads, subject leads and teachers with an understanding of unconscious bias and the actions they can take to mitigate its impact.
Unconscious bias can result in assumptions being made around school children based on any aspect of their identity, such as race, ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic status or even their ability. It can influence how school staff perceive their pupils and lead to favouritism or underestimating their ability to achieve success, potentially affecting educational outcomes.
In this webinar, Principal Examiner, school leader and author of The CRAFT of Assessment, Michael Chiles, explores how schools can recognise and identify their own unconscious bias during teaching and learning to help negate it’s affects and ensure an equal opportunity of success for all students.
Understanding what unconscious bias is and how it develops and impacts cognitive ability.
Recognising how to identify unconscious bias in oneself and developing counter strategies.
How unconscious bias can manifest itself in classroom teaching, grading and assessments and in pupil interactions.
Identifying different types of unconscious bias and how they can shape how educators view, interact and build relationships with pupils.
Building resilience to unconscious bias to help ensure equality, fairness and improved pupil outcomes.
