Culturally Responsive Teaching Professional Learning
September 15, 2020 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
#GoOpenNC is the Open Education Resources initiative in North Carolina, and it’s also the name of the platform where NC educators can become part of the OER community of practice as they find, develop, and share standards aligned instructional and professional learning materials. The #GoOpenNC platform has the ability to design collaborative spaces called “Hubs” that serve to connect resources and users around a central topic.
Throughout Fall 2020, NC educators are invited to engage virtually in the continued development of a Culturally Responsive Teaching (CRT) Hub, which launched in Spring 2020. Culturally Responsive/Relevant Teaching is a way of instruction that values the lived experiences and out of school cultures of all students. This type of instruction situates instructional content and the teaching process within the context of a society that has undervalued the contributions and experiences of black and indigenous people of color (amongst other cultures). When you are being culturally relevant and responsive, you see the culture of all students as bridges to deeper understanding instead of barriers to connection. Meet our CRT Learning Leads here – http://tinyurl.com/GoOpenNC-CRT-Fall (Josh Parker, Lorena Germán and Christina Spears) and then you’ll get to spend 3 weeks learning with them.
In the CRT Hub Academy, participants will learn about OER and #GoOpenNC, work with CRT learning facilitators to strengthen their CRT competencies and share/remix resources with CRT scaffolds to be shared across the state.
If you are interested in participating in the development of the NC CRT hub, join the Hub Academy by applying here! Space is limited, and we will be offering 2 sections. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfJnZ1lZIA1p0Bp3VUsbJ-7i5EZ57qq0PuJ2D9l2anKLI7NNA/viewform?usp=sf_link
There is NO COST for this professional development and each section is limited to 150 participants.
