2023 CRTL Pre-Conference Institute

Registration Closed

Wednesday, April 19, 9am – 4pm

Please note: The CRTL Conference itself will be held in a hybrid format on April 20 and April 21.  

For the Institute, we will have one virtual module, and a separate in-person module.

The CRTL Institute is a full day of training in culturally relevant pedagogy. This special pre-conference session is to train those educators (and others) outside of CCBC interested in becoming a culturally responsive educator or staff member. The CRTL Institute is offering a choice from these two modules: 

Virtual Module

The Meanings of Culture and Race

Facilitators: Jadi Omowale & Denise Parker

This module is considered foundational to our training. It explores the multiple meanings of culture and defines and explores race as a social construct. This workshop will lead participants through several activities that illustrate the CRTL principle that educators must always reflect on how the meanings of our cultures influence our interactions with others, particularly students. It explores the origins of race in the United States, as well as how its social construction leads to bias within our institutions. 

In-Person Module

What Does CRTL Look Like?

Facilitators: Maura Hill and CRTL Advisory Committee Members

Culturally responsive teaching should result in students achieving academic success, cultural competence, and socio-political consciousness. This hands-on workshop provides a framework for faculty to reflect on four domains of their teaching practice—curriculum, teaching methods, relationships, and personal beliefs—to identify areas to infuse cultural pedagogy. Participants will preview interventions that support CRTL, such as High Impact Practices, Transparency in Teaching and Learning, syllabus review, and other discipline-specific practices.
