The link works but says access denied. Is it just my computer or a general problem?

Hi Chris,

I can understand why lecturers are worried about saying the wrong thing but ultimately wanting to stick to one's own ethnic group is essentially affinity bias. It is important students develop the skills and confidence to work effectively with everyone. This is an excellent article for sharing with lecturers as it demonstrates the importance of students engaging effectively with diversity as a predictor of their later effectiveness at work; Expanding opportunities by opening your mind<http://s3.amazonaws.com/academia.edu.documents/33259306/SPPS-2013-Maddux_Bivolaru_Hafenbrack_Tadmor_Galinsky.pdf?AWSAccessKeyId=AKIAIWOWYYGZ2Y53UL3A&Expires=1485884974&Signature=LN7gidT9CjqgHPF5X7T5YpNa%2Fkg%3D&response-content-disposition=inline%3B%20filename%3DExpanding_opportunities_by_opening_your.pdf> . http://s3.amazonaws.com/academia.edu.documents/33259306/SPPS-2013-Maddux_Bivolaru_Hafenbrack_Tadmor_Galinsky.pdf?AWSAccessKeyId=AKIAIWOWYYGZ2Y53UL3A&Expires=1485884974&Signature=LN7gidT9CjqgHPF5X7T5YpNa%2Fkg%3D&response-content-disposition=inline%3B%20filename%3DExpanding_opportunities_by_opening_your.pdf


Can I suggest looking towards the fundamentals of social psychology for some suggestions on how to create more inclusive learning experiences.

Randomise allocation to project teams. A study by Shook and Fazio (2008)<https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Russell_Fazio/publication/23194494_Interracial_Roommate_Relationships_An_Experimental_Field_Test_of_the_Contact_Hypothesis/links/0912f509bba12bd110000000.pdf> found that when roommates from different racial backgrounds had to share rooms they were not necessarily happy but by the end of six months prejudice had reduced.  https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Russell_Fazio/publication/23194494_Interracial_Roommate_Relationships_An_Experimental_Field_Test_of_the_Contact_Hypothesis/links/0912f509bba12bd110000000.pdf


Project work can be especially important because for 'Contact<https://serendip.brynmawr.edu/oneworld/system/files/annurev.psych_.49.1.65-2.pdf>' between people from different groups to lead to prejudice reduction there needs to be equal status, a common goal, co-operation and endorsement by the relevant authority all of which characterise project work. https://serendip.brynmawr.edu/oneworld/system/files/annurev.psych_.49.1.65-2.pdf
See the Jigsaw Classroom<http://www.k12academics.com/pedagogy/jigsaw-classroom#.WJDFwn8SWmt> for more details on structuring educational experiences to promote inclusion. http://www.k12academics.com/pedagogy/jigsaw-classroom#.WJGihn8SWmu


Minimal Group theory<https://www.dowellwebtools.com/tools/lp/Bo/psyched/12/Minimal_Group_Paradigm> also suggests a little friendly competition can help to build project groups into teams; get students to choose a team name or colour and offer a small reward for the best project for example. https://www.dowellwebtools.com/tools/lp/Bo/psyched/12/Minimal_Group_Paradigm


Finally once project teams have a shared identity help individuals to de-categorise<http://s3.amazonaws.com/academia.edu.documents/46318912/Reducing_intergroup_conflict_From_supero20160607-551-1mgfkz6.pdf?AWSAccessKeyId=AKIAIWOWYYGZ2Y53UL3A&Expires=1485887797&Signature=sRu8ob%2FadTFZ6XXwMGZEU7lZAFA%3D&response-content-disposition=inline%3B%20filename%3DReducing_intergroup_conflict_From_supero.pdf>; "personalized, self-revealing interactions to enable them to get to know one another and even become friends". Suggest the use of various 'ice breakers' that help students to share information about their personal interests such as sports, hobbies, music & etc. http://s3.amazonaws.com/academia.edu.documents/46318912/Reducing_intergroup_conflict_From_supero20160607-551-1mgfkz6.pdf?AWSAccessKeyId=AKIAIWOWYYGZ2Y53UL3A&Expires=1485887797&Signature=sRu8ob%2FadTFZ6XXwMGZEU7lZAFA%3D&response-content-disposition=inline%3B%20filename%3DReducing_intergroup_conflict_From_supero.pdf


Good luck and if you do get any more suggestions please do share them.

Hi all,

ECU have reminded me that their materials should not be circulated beyond subscribers (I should know better!). Therefore please can I ask that you respect the copyright on the ECU handout from the Good Relations Training Pack materials that I sent on Friday. If you are not a subscriber, I hope that the one handout I circulated serves as a good taster of the excellent materials in the rest of the pack!

Can I also give a nudge to my request below to share any materials or approaches that you have adopted?

Thanks,

Chris.

Subject: Managing good relations in the classroom

Hi all,

Have any you developed materials or approaches to support teaching staff be more comfortable with addressing good relations?

You will be familiar with students self-segregating in a variety of environments and situations. There is much debate about the value or even legitimacy of safe space provision, but at DMU, we want to encourage our students learning from one another - not only to break down barriers and build understanding between different cultures, genders and racial groups etc, but also to add to the students learning experience and better equip them as global citizens. For me, the place the university should encourage integration is in the formal learning environments of lectures and seminars.

However, I think it is fair to say that some of our academics struggle with how to mix students up - partially because they are afraid of using the wrong language, partially because they feel the students themselves may be resistant to it. Anecdotally I have also heard of some incidents that reflect some of the scenarios in ECU's training pack on good relations (attached) - although these have been around student to student behaviour. This really is therefore a wider debate around managing good relations.

We have formal pedagogical approaches that we adopt, which with proper planning can help with self-segregation, - but I'd like to support our staff develop skills to tackle issues as and when they arise.

Any suggestions you have are greatly received, (either to the list or to [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>)

Thanks and have a nice weekend,

Chris.
