Fostering Students’ Sense of Belonging to Improve Achievement and Resilience

Rescheduled to October 4th at 12:30pm EST – webinar featuring Jacquie Beaubien, Ed.D.

Feeling like one belongs in academic settings is known to have a significant impact on academic performance and resilience (Walton & Cohen, 2007, 2011). Being part of a group for which a negative stereotype exists can lead to feeling belonging uncertainty which, in turn, can cause performance-impairing anxiety, known as stereotype threat (Steele, 1997). In this talk we will explore research on belonging and stereotype threat and what educators can do improve students’ sense of belonging, especially during key transitions when belonging concerns can escalate.
