Understanding and Overcoming the Impostor Phenomenon to Improve Graduate Student Teaching

Thursday, April 8th, 2021 | 3:30 p.m. - 4:15 p.m.

Event Type: Webinar
Facilitator: Linda Stewart

Although the imposter syndrome or phenomenon (IP) is experienced by faculty in higher education, it is often more prevalent among graduate students and graduate student teachers (Blake-Hedges, C. 2018). This phenomenon, characterized by feelings of self-doubt and unworthiness, is at odds with evidence of the individual’s success and achievements. It isn’t uncommon for graduate student teachers to experience feelings of being an imposter or a fraud, but it’s crucial to acknowledge this phenomenon, understand its traits, and identify ways to overcome the stress and anxiety it often creates. This webinar is for graduate students who are currently teaching or interested in teaching in the future, as well as faculty interested in graduate student education.
