Length: 4 weeks, fully online
Prerequisite: This class will focus on online teaching pedagogy and will have assignments that require use of one of your current or recent Canvas course shells.
In this 4-week guided course, you’ll dive into the eight standards of the Peralta Online Teaching Equity Rubric, which is being used at many CCCs in combination with the CVC-OEI Course Design Rubric to create more equitable and inclusive courses that support the success of all online students. You’ll use the rubric to evaluate an online course, discussing each of the rubric criteria with a cohort of colleagues. You will also use the rubric to guide you in creating your own equitable learning activities.
To get the most out of this class, you should have a working knowledge of Canvas and the CVC-OEI Course Design Rubric.
We will focus on two of the eight rubric criteria each week, including:
- Student Resources & Support
- Universal Design for Learning
- Diversity & Inclusion
- Images & Representation
- Human Bias
- Content Meaning
- Connection & Belonging
By the end of this course, participants will be able to:
- Identify elements of sample online courses that demonstrate alignment with rubric criteria;
- Analyze online learning activities using the rubric;
- Suggest resources, activities, tools, or strategies to help other instructors meet criteria within the rubric;
- Create or revise learning resources and/or activities that align with the rubric.
Faculty who complete this training program will earn a badge and a certificate of completion. Participants must finish all tasks with a grade of at least 75% to earn a badge and certificate, and a $350.00 stipend. Faculty may also claim 20 hours of flex.
