September 7th, 2018 - Supporting Equity for Our Students

California community colleges serve over 2 million students--many of them are the first in their families to attend college. Our students juggle work, family, and school. Many experience systemic barriers that inhibit their success, including racism, sexism, poverty, and physical and mental health challenges.

Whether you teach fully online, hybrid, or face-to-face, however, there are resources available to help you build a learning experience for your students that will close the achievement gap, allowing students to meet their academic goals and launch their careers. This First Friday session focuses on using data to better understand the barriers facing your students, developing support services, like online counseling, to support the well-being of online students, and using Open Educational Resources to unlock access to quality learning materials for your students.

Each session requires free, online registration.

August 3, 2018 - Supporting Faculty in the CCCs

A 2015 report from the Public Policy institute of California shows that faculty support is integral to the success of online courses. Faculty support also plays a key role in encouraging faculty to try using new digital tools and make changes in their teaching. But what exactly does faculty support look like across our system? What can you learn from other California Community Colleges and what do we know about this emerging field? This First Friday session will examine the realities of individuals in faculty support roles, showcase effective strategies and shared struggles, and facilitate sharing across campuses.

Each session requires free, online registration.

Ideas for Student-Student Interactions

May 4, 2018 - How can I teach this online?

The CCCs are dedicated to providing all students access to fully online transfer degrees, but some courses are more challenging to deliver online, whether from academic and disciplinary expectations and assumptions, or technical gaps. Recently, however, traditionally face-to-face courses have made huge strides in online development. Join us for a look into two of the disciplines that have faced these challenges, science and communication.
