Service-Learning as a Pedagogical Tool in Contextualized ESL and Developmental English Classes

Monday, January 6, 2020 - 1:30pm to 2:30pm
Event Location: 
W2-47

Presenters: Girija Nagaswami, Madeline Marcotte, Sotiria Koui
Audience: Faculty, Administrators

Location: W2-47

Learning Goals:

The participants will learn the following:

  1. What is service-learning and tenets of service-learning
  2. How to integrate service-learning in contextualized English classes
  3. How students' engagement in service-learning can be assessed
  4. How service-learning influences students' self-efficacy and persistence


Program Description:
Service-learning is a form of experiential learning where equal weight is given to both service and learning. Moreover, it offers a connection between what students learn within the confines of their classroom to deeper learning outside of the classroom. Additionally, while traditional classroom learning promotes content knowledge, service-learning not only promotes content knowledge but also socially relevant knowledge. Even though service-learning is offered to students in credit-bearing college courses, students in ESL and Developmental classes are not given an opportunity to engage in service-learning. However, research has shown that service-learning enables students to gain better self-efficacy and persistence. and students in the ESL and Developmental English classes, the most vulnerable population, would benefit immensely from a service-learning experience.

The presenters will share how they integrated service-learning in their contextualized English classes and describe students' experiences and how the service-learning experience helped in improving students' low self-efficacy and persistence. In addition, they will also share how students' service-learning experience was assessed in relation to the course learning outcomes.

Diversity Certificate Program Seminar: Racism 101

Diversity Certificate Program Seminar: Racism 101

Monday, January 6, 2020 - 2:30pm to 3:30pm

Presenters: Debonair Oates-Primus, Derrick Perkins
Audience: Faculty, Staff, Administrators

Location: W2-48
Program Description:
“Is this racist, professor?” “Deb, can I ask you about an incident with a student where I absolutely did not intend to be racist and the student took it wrong?” “Derrick, can you talk to this student who misunderstood what I said in class?” As scholars of color who teach about race, black identity, and intersectionality, students of color and white colleagues often ask us to analyze and interpret their lived experiences and to determine if they have experienced or perpetrated racism. White colleagues formally and informally inquire about whether or not they have committed a racist act. Some of these retold experiences are the examples of racism that most people are most comfortable with--overt racism. Most people believe that racism looks one way: ugly, hateful, often violent or hostile, and consciously perpetrated. However, most racist acts, and the ones our students are asking us to analyze, are the microaggressions, the macroaggressions, the institutional racism, and the “everyday racism.” Everyday racism is not about one individual being racist, but about the normalization of racist practices in our “societal behavior” (Paul 447).

So, what does racism look like in the 21st century? What are the ways it operates within existing structures, institutions, and our everyday lives? In this instructional workshop, participants will learn about the various forms of racism that exists and their definitions, the historical origins of racist practices in the U.S., and the ways its shapeshifted and persisted throughout time. Racism is all-encompassing. It includes blatantly racist remarks and actions, as well as unconscious bias, belief in stereotypes, and racially biased institutional barriers. Racism’s coding is sophisticated because it has been designed and redesigned over centuries. In this workshop participants will not just learn about racism, but also confront the reasons they have not expansively learned about a complex system that has shaped our lived experiences, before now.

Program Description:

Launched in Fall 2019, Pride Portal (formerly "My Colonial Community") is CCP's powerful new online campus engagement tool provided by the Division of Student Development. This "one stop hub for campus engagement" helps promote and measure student involvement opportunities and gives student organizations the tools they need to manage their affairs more effectively, while gaining valuable insight into the true impact of co-curricular activities. The system makes it easy for student and campus organizations to track roster membership, improve the overall administrative process, register students for events and keep a record of service hours, internships and other engagement efforts. Engage makes it easier for students to discover the myriad of programs happening on and off campus through a comprehensive events calendar – with an accompanying mobile app – and to have a clear picture of how active they've been outside of the classroom over the course of each semester. By tracking this data, CCP will be able to see the activities and events that most engage students, and improve on those efforts. Faculty and staff can have pages created for their offices, departments or divisions and are invited to learn about this new tool, and how you can use it to engage with students and help you to achieve your own goals as well. Visit PridePortal.CCP.edu or contact Richard Kopp at to learn more or have a page created for your office/department/division.

Race Talk Series: Macroaggressions and the Workplace - Creating Safe Spaces for Faculty of Color (Diversity Certificate Program Seminar)

Presenter:

Shante Antrom

Audience:

Faculty, Staff, Administrators

Location: 

W2-48

Program Description:

This is the first of three in a series on Research underpins the reality that both faculty and students of color experience racialized trauma, which is race-based stress stemming from institutional racism, macroaggressions and other racial harassments. This trauma is deleterious to the learning and teaching process and works against the goals of respect and acceptance this college seeks to create. Clearly, creating racially-safe environments for students and supporting faculty, which entails repelling any resemblance of racial inequality, encourages student and faculty retention. Also, in the article, Race Pedagogy: Faculty Preparation Matters, Williams and Conyers (2016) encourage safe spaces for faculty to discuss frustrations relating to race talk and microaggressions experienced in-class and elsewhere on campus. It is important to institute programs, focusing on racial healing as both students and faculty are greatly affected by racism in the campus environment.

The University of Washington conducted a study that revealed a connection between racially discriminatory campus climates and grade point averages amongst minority students. A study entitled Interactional Diversity and the Role of a Supportive Racial Climate, found that both dominant and non-dominant racial groups suffer academically when racism is permitted to exist in any form on campus (Cox, 2010). Race Talk: Engaging Culturally Responsive Pedagogues in the 21st Century, is a necessary addition to the discussions on diversity and mindfulness offered by the College. The series will offer the following discussions; Black Rage & White Fragility: Creating a Path for Change, Racial Trauma and the Student Experience and Macroaggressions and the Workplace: Creating Safe Spaces for Faculty of Color.

Event Location: 
W2-48

Presenters:

Alexine Fleck, Mary Hoeffel

Audience:

Faculty, Staff, Administrators

Location: 

W2-48

Program Description:

"Like fighting an addiction, being an anti-racist requires persistent self-awareness, constant self-criticism, and regular self-examination" (Ibram X. Kendi)

As Roxanne Gay notes, allies "stand up and take on the problems borne of oppression as their own, without remove or distance." Many white people claim to be -- or aspire to be -- better anti-racist allies, but what does that actually mean? It's easy to want the secret formula for allyship, but that desire can itself become oppressive because it oversimplifies what must be a complex and thoughtful reaction to the insidious and entrenched nature of racism. While this workshop will not offer simple strategies, we will share what we have learned about allyship. You will also have a chance to practice responding to racism during role-play exercises. Ideally, participants will have attended the Racism 101 workshop prior to this session (this session will be held on Monday January 6th 2:30pm – 4pm in W2-48).

Please note: the people who have designed this session have committed themselves to being better allies, but none of them make any claims of mastery. Allyship is a process, not a status, and all the presenters can do is share what they have learned so far

Control Your Thoughts, Control Your Stress

Control Your Thoughts, Control Your Stress

Friday, January 10, 2020 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm
Event Location: 
W2-48

Presenter:

Dr. Sharon Katz

Audience:

Faculty, Staff, Administrators

Location:

 W2-48

Program Description:

Events in our personal and work lives can trigger stress. Many people mistakenly believe that the events themselves are solely responsible for our reactions. While the events themselves do often spark a stress reaction, our thought process can also play a role. Our perception of the events as well as our thoughts about the events are actually responsible for a lot of the stress we experience. When we think, “This is awful,” “This always happens to me,” or “I used to love my job but now I hate it,” these thoughts can actually increase our levels of stress and make it more difficult for us to take effective action. The good news is that we can learn to change our thinking so it is more positive and balanced. This seminar will assist participants in identifying the most common forms of distorted thinking that lead to feelings of irritation, frustration, and fear. Participants will acquire skills to challenge these thoughts and to replace them with more realistic self-talk.
