This course is designed to engage and develop your understanding and increase your awareness of unconscious bias with some signposting and tips.

We may not be aware of our unconscious biases or their implications. If we can become aware, we can learn to adapt our behaviours and improve decision making processes to enhance our performance as well as that of a team or an institution.

We use the Advance HE definition of Unconscious Bias and general examples and activities to appreciate that unconscious bias happens all the time in every place of life. The live session builds on your preparatory work, with discussion and sharing of perspectives to support you to reflect and relate activities to our individual lives and create future plans to take forward. 

Course Information

This course includes preparatory activities (~70 minutes) that you need to complete before the live session (120 minutes). Participants are expected to fully engage with both parts, and they are a condition to gain credit for the course.

N.B. This course does not cover machine learning.  

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this blended course and using the pre- and post-course materials, you will be better able to:

  • Identify what Unconscious Bias is and how it operates
  • Recognise how Unconscious Bias affects our behaviour and decision making
  • Review methods for mitigating your Unconscious Bias
