Fair Play: A Video Game Intervention into Bias

This workshop provides a unique approach to learning about the negative effects of implicit bias through perspective taking and empathy for students who experience racially-based incidents. In addition to an interactive discussion, participants will play the game “Fair Play,” which follows the path of a graduate student. The demo version of “Fair Play Today” will also be shown to elicit feedback and discussion about bias in K-12 education. Please bring a laptop (not tablet) to this session.
