This professional development opportunity has two main parts:
- Three 60-minute virtual Zoom meetings to discuss how the experiences and perspectives in this book relate to our students.
- D2L Brightspace course to explore issues related to the book. The “course” will use short, asynchronous, interactive activities to help us explore how we can better serve our students, connect across the system, and share resources.
The systemwide book group is an opportunity to learn about a topic that affects our students and create action plans to create more equitable learning opportunities for students on our campuses and to eliminate the equity gap by 2030.
