NameCoach for Equitable Classrooms

October 26 @ 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm

NameCoach is a new tool provided by the OEI to California Community Colleges that nurtures inclusion in the classroom and other campus settings. It is now available to all OEI consortiums colleges at no cost and available to all CCCs at a discount. NameCoach provides students with a simple way to record a pronunciation of their name and convey their gender that is easily shared with their instructor and student peers. In this webinar, you will see NameCoach in action and hear how Foothill College has used it to foster belonging and address equity gaps.

By the end of this session, participants will be able to utilize NameCoach to help faculty, staff, and students build more equitable classrooms and avoid mispronouncing and misgendering students.
