Equity-Minded Teaching and Learning Institute

 The goal of equity-minded teaching and learning is to promote a culture of validating students’ identities and culture, engaging students in their academic work, and recognizing student capacity. This can be accomplished through the meaningful implementation of multiple teaching approaches.

The Equity-Minded Teaching and Learning Institute (EMTLI) is a yearly cohort-based professional development activity in which participating faculty analyze their classroom data, disaggregated by race/ethnicity, and then make changes to their curriculum and teaching practices using a culturally responsive teaching and learning (CRTL) framework.

During the first semester of the EMTLI, faculty receive their disaggregated classroom data to identify strengths and weaknesses in their current practices and develop goals to address areas of concern. Faculty then participate in a series of inquiry and thematic meetings that feature expert guest speakers and facilitators, reviewing inequitable historical practice in education and the California Master Plan. These meetings are designed to give faculty a foundation in the history of educational practice, student capacity, and CRTL.

In the second semester of the EMTLI, after strengthening faculty members' understanding of these concepts and the CRTL framework, faculty make curricular and/or pedagogical changes intended to close equity gaps, and assess their interventions to promote a culture of continuous improvement.
