In any classroom environment, the unfortunate occurrence of microaggressions—subtle or indirect discrimination or bullying—is always possible. Whether an observer, the target, or unintended perpetrator of microaggressions, you may not know how to recognize them or how to respond to them as they happen.

As student populations grow more and more diverse, it’s becoming increasingly important for instructors to take extra strides to ensure a safe space for all students—part of that includes mitigating the possibility of microaggressions.

Register today for the Magna Online Seminar, What are Microaggressions and What Can I Do About Them?, presented by Tasha Souza, PhD. You’ll gain an understanding of what microaggressions look like in the classroom, actions to take when they occur, and how to cultivate a classroom environment that limits them.


By knowing what microaggressions are, the impact they have on students and learning, and how to respond to them, faculty will become more effective teachers, and students will be in a better position to learn and grow in the classroom.


Upon completion of this seminar, you’ll be able to:

  • Describe microaggressions and their impact
  • Consider ways to create a class climate that limits microaggressions
  • Apply strategies in response to microaggressions


Microaggressions in the classroom:

  • Definition of microaggressions
  • Implicit bias
  • Examples of microaggressions
  • The impact of microaggressions
  • Strategies for responding to microaggressions
