Welcome to Your Personal Learning Lab

Self-awareness is the capacity for introspection and the ability to recognize oneself as an individual separate from the environment and other individuals. It is how we consciously know and understand our character, feelings, motives, and desires. It requires the ability to self-reflect and be aware of the impact we have on others and the world around us (and of their impact on us).

This personal learning lab provides you with tools and games aimed to help you build on your self-awareness and knowledge. Check out the learning opportunities below based on: Microaggressions, Race and Racism, Bias, and Privilege.
