Join the Bias Aware Teaching and Learning Special Interest Group
If you are a teacher, student or administrator interested in how implicit biases affect teaching and learning, consider joining the Bias Aware Teaching and Learning (BATL) Special Interest Group established within DUN, the Danish Network for Educational Development in Higher Education.
Biases can influence our judgements and decisions on recruitment, teaching, learning, assessment and evaluation. The impact of unconscious biases is twofold: they can lead to unjust judgements and decisions and they limit novelty, both of which contradict principles of higher education. BATL SIG will share, develop and experiment with strategies for raising awareness of our unconscious biases and reframing practices and attitudes.
BATL SIG will facilitate access to empirical data and research studies on bias and university recruitment, teaching, learning, assessment and course evaluations, providing a constructive and supportive network for colleagues who want to engage with related research and or scholarly practice.
If you are interested in joining the SIG, please write an email to Valeria Borsotti, Special Advisor - ITU Learning Support (firstname.lastname@example.org).
