Imposter Syndrome in Higher Ed: Examining the Self, the System, and Opportunities for Change

MEMBER-EXCLUSIVE COURSE

Imposter Syndrome in Higher Ed: Examining the Self, the System, and Opportunities for Change

You have likely heard of imposter syndrome – but do you know the systemic causes and how you can change the narrative?

Too often, imposter syndrome is regarded as a deficiency of the person experiencing it. Rarely do we examine the system that created it and that allows it to thrive. For faculty, being in academia can seem like a never-ending quest for “more,” to prove you are “enough,” or that you are “worthy” of the accolades you achieve. For faculty who represent diverse and historically marginalized groups, the burden of imposter syndrome is especially heavy and inconducive to well-being and career success.

This video course examines the experience of imposter syndrome in higher education from three angles: the self, the system, and opportunities for change. Our experts will help you to reflect on how you may experience imposter syndrome, understand its root causes, and enable you to change that narrative by understanding those elements of your career and well-being that you have control over.

This video course has been designed specifically for faculty of all disciplines, both tenure-track and term faculty, although anyone who wants to better understand imposter syndrome and how it presents in higher education will also find value in this video course.

The following lessons are included with this course.
