Reflective Practice Groups will run again in spring 2018.
Communities of practice have very valuable benefits by enabling knowledge sharing and collaborative problem solving for planning and preparation, classroom environment, instruction or professional responsibilities.
The meetings will consist of a structured conversation about teaching-related issues, solutions, and resources. The sessions will be every two weeks with the day and time to be determined by the responses to the survey that was emailed out.
All CCD faculty (full- and part-time) are invited to attend one or more Reflective Practice Groups. Adjunct instructors will be paid for their time.
With equity as the backdrop the goal of this session is to understand the impact of cultural competence in the 21st Century classroom. This interactive session defines cultural competence and the intersections of bias, cultural identity, microaggressions and culturally responsive teaching in classroom environments. In addition, this session will engage participants to identifying classroom biases and microaggressions then work collaboratively to develop strategies to address and remove them, thus, promoting an equitable and inclusive classroom.
