Equity Project – Intro to CRTL in Tutoring (9/8/17) – LA Southwest College

The goal of tutoring is to assist students in their learning process as they become independent learners.  Tutors help students earn higher grades, stay in school longer and reach their educational goals. Tutoring is equity in action.  This Introduction to Equity and Culturally Responsive Teaching and Learning (CRTL) interactive workshop will give Tutors an opportunity to learn and engage in activities to support their efforts in helping students reach their goals and improve student success outcomes. Facilitators, Arnita Porter and Paula Brown, will (1) introduce principles of Equity, CRTL, and Cultural Humility, (2) engage participants in discussions to increase awareness and deepen their understanding of learning barriers, such as unconscious bias and stereotype threat, and (3) provide tools and strategies for embedding CRTL and high-impact practices to create equity-minded tutoring sessions that are welcoming, supportive, and learning-centered. Join us to share ideas, build community and network with equity-minded Tutors.

8:30 – 9:00 am – Continental Breakfast, Check-in
