Adam Smith (Portrait) Jamie Kim (Portrait)Impostor Phenomenon (IP) is the belief, despite evidence to the contrary, that one is inadequate, unworthy, and does not belong in a particular role or position. While IP is quite common in academia, both faculty and students often suffer in secret. In this workshop, we will briefly summarize some of the research on IP and consider how IP emerges both from human nature and from particular disciplinary cultures in higher ed. We’ll engage in self-assessment and discuss how to apply strategies that others have used to successfully disrupt the IP cycle. Adam Smith and Jamie Kim will facilitate.
