Description

Learning materials used in the classroom are a social justice issue. Traditional textbooks can present barriers to students in the form of cost as well as in the narrative embedded within the content. This year PCC designed and implemented a 2-part professional development opportunity: the Open Education and Equity Faculty Cohort. We asked instructors to explore intersections between open education, culturally responsive teaching, universal design and open pedagogy and then to implement some of their learning in curriculum revision. This poster will provide an overview of the cohort design and our experience leading it.
