Student Perceptions of Instructors' Race and Gender

Although instructors experience race- and gender-related bias, no research explores how students' perceptions may differ when instructors' race and gender varies within the context of a learning-focused course. This research session shares the results of a mixed-methods study at an R1 institution that identifies the impact of race and gender on students' perceptions of faculty and syllabi. Educational developers must understand how instructor race and gender affect students' perceptions, particularly for learning-focused courses. Without this information, we cannot know whether learning-centered course design recommendations apply equally to all instructors, and we therefore cannot meet the needs of a diverse professoriate.
