September 8 @ 8:00 am - September 9 @ 3:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)
until 09/24/2017

How can college courses become truly equitable spaces where students capitalize on the assets they bring to higher education?

What if we could increase the rate and depth of student success by building their willingness and capacity to engage in deep learning in the disciplines?  

 

This hands-on, two-day workshop for CSU and California Community College faculty explores the connection between academic literacy and equity. It will introduce the Reading Apprenticeship framework for developing students’ ability to read in the disciplines and incorporate strategies for uncovering threshold concepts and growing academic mindsets. By practicing Reading Apprenticeship routines, identifying threshold concepts in their disciplines, and building growth mindset into learning activities, participants will consider the link between supporting academic literacies and transforming college courses and classrooms into equitable learning spaces.

 

The workshop is presented by the California Faculty Collaborative, an AAC&U grant-funded project, in partnership with 3CSN.

 

Parking information will be provided closer to the event.
