The California Virtual Campus’ free Equitable Online Teaching series explores how to foster student agency through an asset-based teaching lens and hone a critical mindset about why and how you grade your students. The system’s Vision for Success, Guided Pathways, and AB705 have increased opportunities for more students to achieve their academic goals. To make more progress toward equitable learning for all students, faculty and staff must work together to adjust traditional instructional practices to center and celebrate the diversity and brilliance of our students, while embracing the numerous opportunities online classes provide.
Each workshop provides opportunities to apply concepts and strategies to your own courses. Both new and veteran online instructors are invited to attend the entire series or individual sessions a la carte.
