C3-2-1 Newsletter

Want to share some of your favorite things with our faculty community? If you have some resources, tips/tricks, and questions to share, please contribute to the newsletter using this C3-2-1 Form.

3 resources:

I. ESCALA Educational Services

As a college designated as an HSI (Hispanic-Serving Institution), we must make efforts to close the equity gaps suffered by these populations. This organization is wholly committed to that mission. In addition to the resources on their site, ESCALA offers a Certificate in College Teaching and Learning in HSIs – the next offerings are this summer.

II. Mindset Scholars Network 

We hear a lot about things like Growth Mindset, Belonging, and Purpose in discussions on education. However, how much research is there on these concepts, and what are the most reliable conclusions? Check out the work being done by this group to answer those questions. 

III. Promoting Student Transformation At A Community College

The title says it all. This e-book is for those who do what we do. Lisa Lane, History Faculty, recommended this book to me. While I am still working my way through it, I felt that it is something to include here. *Thanks, Lisa!* 🙂 

2 online tips and tricks: 

I. Applying a missing submission policy in the Canvas Gradebook– 

You can set up your grade book so that scores for missing assignments automatically generate a specific score. You can also automatically apply a deduction to late submissions. If you have been doing this manually, this tutorial may save you some time and effort. 

II. More than points – using and enabling grading schemes in the Canvas Gradebook

If using and displaying a specific grading scheme will add clarity to students’ performance in your class, you can learn how to adjust the grade book to better suit your needs here. 

1 question for you to ponder:

How has the availability and accessibility of information in the internet age (1995 to present-day) changed our role as educators? 

Be joyful,
