|Success for All Learners through Equity (Online)
|Equity and cultural competence are important aspects of creating a fair and equitable educational environment for learners. Adult education often serves marginalized populations that either have not had the opportunity to complete their education as youth or were not successful and perhaps not served equitably in the K12 public education system. Many school districts, colleges, libraries and community organizations have done significant work on addressing the issues of equity. This professional development module takes some of these concepts and applies them to adult education. This course takes place entirely online and runs for four consecutive weeks. Weekly participation is required, though participants may, during a given week, log in whenever they wish. A kick-off Webinar will take place during the first week, with a second webinar taking place during the third week. Participants who successfully complete this course will receive a certificate of participation (16 hours); they are also eligible to apply to CSUS for 1.6 Continuing Education Units (CEUs), if they wish.
|There is no registration fee to participate; CALPRO professional development opportunities are available to all California Adult Education Program (CAEP) agencies and employees.
|In this session participants will be introduced to some basic concepts related to equity and begin to analyze how equity is achieved in their own programs. They will become familiar with the stages of cultural competence and consider a variety of program policies in light of it. Example lesson activities will also be analyzed.
