Centering Equity-Minded Professional Development in an Anti-Racism Framework
Using an anti-racist lens to close racial equity gaps requires us to re-envision how we offer, and the content of, equity-minded professional development in the California Community Colleges. Cuyamaca College's Equity-Minded Teaching and Learning Institute (EMTLI) is a year-long professional development program that inspires a different way forward, empowering faculty to make changes through self-reflection on their own lived experiences, their equity data, instructional practices, and curriculum. Through practical teaching and learning approaches rooted in Critical Race Theory, this institute cultivates communities of practice committed to improving instruction. Faculty use EMTLI content and their data to reimagine teaching practices and create supportive, caring classrooms that are culturally responsive and build on students' cultural wealth. During this session, participants will experience how EMTLI functions by engaging in self-reflection and collaborative discussions in small breakout groups. Participants will also learn how Cuyamaca College approached this work and scaled EMTLI across disciplines.
Presenters: Katie Cabral, Moriah Gonzalez-Meeks, and Dr. Jesus Miranda, Cuyamaca College
