Short Description:
Our traditional systems of grading tend to reward behavior rather than knowledge, to be demotivating, and to demand that instructors perform endless workarounds to improve student outcomes. In this webinar, the presenters introduce an approach to grading that aims to equitably assess student learning and motivate student persistence. Presenters share details about grading strategies, preliminary results, and lessons learned from the implementation. They also provide a sample alternative assessment tool.

Short Description:
The contemporary challenges community college leaders face are increasingly complex and must be addressed with a new approach to leadership. Adaptive challenges, such as the impact of COVID-19, changing student population demographics, local economic and political challenges, and unique and complex personnel issues, do not have easy solutions. They require an adaptive leader equipped with a unique set of strategies, including: Engaging in critical self-reflection; tailoring communication to the situation and audience; dissociating from the problem; analyzing the issue by listening to diverse perspectives; managing emotional responses with sensitivity; empowering those who are change-averse; and challenging assumptions with data. This webinar is especially relevant to community college leaders and aspiring leaders, but all who are interested are welcome to attend.

Short Description:
Deaf students face many challenges in achievement and advancement of their postsecondary goals. The National Deaf Center identified negative attitudes and biases as some of biggest barriers that directly affect deaf students. It is also important to note that deaf students with multiple identities, such as race, ethnicity, and additional disabilities may experience additional barriers, especially biases and attitudes. These attitudes and biases are pervasive across the education system and marginalize the experiences of deaf students. This webinar introduces how biases, attitudes, and social constructs impact educational attainment for deaf students. The webinar allows participants to examine how attitudes and biases result in barriers for deaf students, how preconceived expectations about deaf people’s identities and experiences can limit their education, and how we can take action to create impacts as individuals and as educators.
