The Equity Project presented “Designing a Cohesive Equity-Embedding Framework for SI Leaders, Tutors, and Embedded Tutors” at Riverside College on August 17, 2017. This day-long program was attended by 60 tutors and SI leaders. During the program, the EP coordinators introduced the principles of equity, CRTL, and cultural humility, led an engaging discussion on the learning barriers, and explored effective strategies for embedding equity and CRTL principles and practices into the tutors and SI leader’s daily efforts to help students reach their goals and improve student success.
The feedback from this event was as amazing as the participants and their ability to connect the content with their personal, emotional stories. They appreciated having language to connect to their feelings and past learning experiences. They conveyed feelings regarding having the space and ability to express a real connection to the work they’re doing and its importance to student success. Riverside college has an energetic, cohesive, group of future teachers who are conscientiously assisting and leading their peers. We will be returning to Riverside College on September 29th to continue the Equity conversation and goal of embedding Equity everywhere.
