The ATD Equity Institute February 19, 2019, in Long Beach, CA
Developing a Single-Minded Focus on Equity

We designed this unique interactive day-long institute during the first day of our annual convening, DREAM. College teams will engage in learning opportunities and activities to develop a deeper understanding of what equity means, what it looks like in practice and how it is manifested or stifled on their campuses. They will engage in conversations around equity challenges impeding the success of their students and brainstorm practical solutions that empower all members of the college community. Teams will be challenged to engage with new tools to use in their own equity strategy. Register today.

ATD Teaching & Learning Summit: Building a Culture of Teaching Excellence for Student Success: May 30 – June 1, 2019 in Minneapolis, MN

Our Teaching & Learning Summit will strengthen the role of Centers for Teaching and Learning and empower faculty as leaders in addressing issues of student access, achievement, persistence, completion, and equity in teaching and learning. Teams composed of faculty members, academic affairs administrators, faculty developers and Center for Teaching & Learning directors will engage with experts in teaching and learning, coaches, and practitioners from ATD colleges as they devise action plans to bolster their institution’s teaching and learning capacity and expand the use of evidence-based classroom techniques. The Summit program will feature multiple focused tracks, including one on implementation of Open Educational Resources.  Colleges that choose this track will learn about the role of OER in fostering open pedagogy and how best to integrate the use of OER in broader institutional student success strategies. Check our website soon for details.
