2020 Fall Plenary Session - Virtual Event

Pathable Virtual Event Platform

Plenary graphic photo by Dr. Rachel N. Hastings, MiraCosta College:
20 in 20 is both an act of remembrance and an act of systemic resistance. It is a visual reminder of the weight of anti-Blackness and systemic racism that we are carrying into our futures. I lift these names up and call upon you to join me in developing systemic strategies of resistance. In remembering. In re-writing the narrative for Black people in America. In re-designing the structures that stunt our human relations. We must re-imagine the possibilities. We must continue to #SayTheirNames. 
 
 THEME: Addressing Anti-Blackness & IDEAs (Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Anti-Racism) in Academic and Professional Matters

2020 Academic Academy - Virtual Event

Pathable Virtual Event Platform

Interruptions in education are not new. Snow days, extreme heat, floods, and earthquakes can all lead to temporary school closures. In addition, California’s students may experience the extended disruption and devastating impact of fires. But a global pandemic requiring social distancing and the sudden cessation of traditional classroom instruction for an undefined time period is a force so impactful that our evolution is forced – is it education’s Big Bang, where we will emerge anew? Or is it our Ice Age, leading to the extinction of select species and the rapid evolution of the survivors? This year’s ASCCC Academic Academy will explore the impact of our recent history on the future of education. Join us as we explore the use of open and online approaches to finding ways to redefine instruction and assessment, create more equitable learning environments, address long-standing inequities exacerbated by reliance on technology, and improve the success of all students.

Cancelled - 2020 Spring Plenary Session

Oakland Marriott City Center

March 17, 2020

Dear Colleagues,

In an attempt to flatten the curve of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Governor Newsom ordered statewide cancellations of events of more than 250 people, and the CDC released additional guidelines suggesting that gatherings larger than 50 people be cancelled. The Academic Senate for California Community Colleges is heeding the guidance and have decided to postpone the Area Meetings and Spring Plenary Session until further notice. The health and wellbeing of our staff, attendees, and community comes first and we understand that many of our colleges and faculty face additional loads, as colleges transition to remote learning or make the difficult decision of closing the campus. The Academic Senate is here to support you during this time. We are currently putting together some resources to distribute to the field to help support the transitions taking place locally. 

We will be sending out communication regarding our annual spring elections in the near future.

If you haven’t already, please contact the Oakland Marriott to ensure your hotel reservation has been cancelled. The Senate Office is taking care of the refunds and will provide a message to all registered attendees on this shortly. 

We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time. If you have any questions, please feel free to direct them to me- krystinne@asccc.org.

Take care of yourself and take care of each other,
Krystinne

Specific topics include:

  • Faculty partnerships

The program will emphasize creating faculty partnerships in credit or noncredit to improve the collegiate experience and academic achievement of our students.  These partnerships will further improve collaborative projects and initiatives by integrating classroom instruction, counseling, and student services. The Academy can inform and spark conversations around the role for all faculty in the following   areas: creation and implementation of guided pathways of learning, recommendations of the Workforce Task Force, and other initiatives.

Additional breakouts will address ongoing student equity planning and cultural competency in relation to the development of inclusive campuses to ensure student and faculty success.

This event will provide CTE faculty with the opportunity to engage in key policy conversations through their interaction with representatives of the task force, by learning about the implications of policy decisions on local programs and courses, and in participating in breakout sessions to better understand the college processes including topics on leadership, curriculum design, course repetition, and effective program advocacy.
