Applying the Peralta Equity Rubric to Promote Connection and Belonging
The revised Peralta Online Equity Rubric emphasizes a new criterion called “Connection and Belonging.” In this workshop, we present three model practices: one introductory discussion along with two sample assignments that align with this criterion. Participants will leave with ideas of how to reformulate their own assignments to foster a sense of connection and belonging.

By the end of the session, participants will be able to:
1) Explain the importance of connection and belonging in online classes.
2) Rework their own introductory exercise to increase a sense of connection and belonging

  1. I am inspired by the twitter connection and sense of belonging. I am convinced that this type of commonality for students encourages them to look forward to coming to class and also encourages retention. Thank you for these ideas!
