Intro to Equity and CRTL will give participants an opportunity to learn and engage in activities to support their efforts in reducing opportunity gaps and improving student success outcomes. Facilitators, Arnita Porter and Paula Brown, will provide an overview of Equity and Culturally Responsive Teaching and Learning (CRTL) pedagogy and share effective practices to improve equitable outcomes for students across disciplines and in the delivery of services. Using Appreciative Inquiry, participants will engage in activities that foster
1. integration of equity and CRTL principles into their daily practice to improve students’ sense of belonging and increase engagement;
2. alignment with student equity and college success plans; and
3. building capacity for creating equity-minded institutions.
From a strength-based perspective, this interactive workshop focuses on reimagining our campus communities into welcoming and supportive environments for our students.
