Description: 

This four-part series is designed to orient early childhood educators to the foundational content necessary for deeper study of equity, cultural responsiveness and the implications they have in early childhood education (ECE) environments. The series will allow ECE educators to examine their own biases or expectations toward children of diverse backgrounds. It will also offer an environment where educators can safely discuss and identify anti-bias solutions to support a culturally responsive learning environment for young children and their families.

This module will explore the science of implicit bias, give examples of how implicit bias shows up in daily life and allow participants to practice strategies to interrupt implicit bias. In examining implicit bias, emphasis will be on the impact of microaggressions and stereotypes that influence teaching and learning while working with children and families. Participants will engage with content to guide them to a common understanding of what implicit bias is. They will also engage in activities that cause them to reflect on their own biases and those of others. The module will introduce research studies involving bias as well as strategies to address bias in the workplace.

This course addresses the following age band(s):

  • Early childhood - early (birth-36 months)
  • Early childhood - middle (36-60 months)
  • Early childhood - late (5-8 years)
