Mitigating Unconscious Bias in Education
The project financed by Pearson will run over 2020-2022 and develop and test the effectiveness of a training programme designed together with psychologists and educationalists to help teachers recognise UB and contrast it. The objectives are to increase teaching effectiveness and enjoyment by reducing the effects of UB in class, in teaching materials and methods and in students evaluation, and it aims to help increase inclusion, improving the educational and behavioural outcomes of all pupils. A pilot was run with Pearson Italy in 2017-18 and builds on an earlier intervention designed in the UK in 2015-16.
