In this two-day academy, faculty will learn to examine student success data for equity gaps and to reflect on, and adjust, instructional practices to deepen engagement and learning for all students. Participants will consider how racial and ethnic identities of faculty and students shape expectations about teaching and learning, learn to tap students' existing funds of knowledge, practice monitoring microaggressions to create inclusive educational spaces, and identify discipline-specific strategies for building equity-mindedness into their pedagogies. Each CSU campus is invited to send five faculty, faculty developers, and administrators to the academy. Faculty interested in attending should contact their provost’s office or faculty development center.
This two-day summit is an opportunity for faculty, staff and administrators to collaborate with colleagues from their own campus and across the system. There will be sessions on expectations, responsibilities and roles of course coordination; faculty development before and during the academic year; communication essentials; and assessment and grading. By the end of the workshop, participants will have finalized implementation plans for course coordination and identified campus and systemwide networks for ongoing support of student learning in entry-level written communication and mathematics/quantitative reasoning courses. Chairs of English and mathematics departments; faculty or staff in any department or program that are coordinating composition courses or courses in statistics, quantitative reasoning and the path to calculus; directors of faculty development centers; and directors or coordinators of learning support services are encouraged to attend.
