Identify microinsults and microinvalidations, learn strategies for having constructive conversations about racism and practise challenging others safely and effectively.Explore
Kriysia Collyer and Michael Avis show us how virtual reality provides a psychologically safe space to challenge our beliefs in an immersive and action-oriented way.
“When using this with my class, my students found it really thought provoking. It was a great tool to have them open up and interrogate the race-based assumptions they participate in and how to become an ally in a non judgemental, safe environment.”
"Let’s Talk About Race is the perfect resource to support course content or to use as an assignment after sessions on Anti-Racism and Anti-Oppression. It provided my students opportunities to reflect on their own biases, and they shared that they felt more confident to talk about race and to challenge biases and microaggression."
“I absolutely loved this way of learning. The way the avatars spoke and explained different and new definitions to me really helped me to understand and become more aware of racism.”
“I found the experience to be fun and different as well as educational all at once. It was a good way to demonstrate real world issues and experiences.”
“It was very helpful to learn how we can express our emotions without harming others’ feelings. I think it’s time to take action for reducing stereotypes and negative perspectives from our brain!”
