Event description

Description

The Teaching Academy, in partnership with the Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC), offers a special training opportunity: The Culturally Responsive Teaching (CRT) Workshop Series.

Since 2004, the Culturally Responsive Teaching and Training Program at CCBC has been augmenting participants’ awareness, changing attitudes, adding to their knowledge of others, and strengthening their skills at interacting effectively in the field with clients, patients, customers, co-workers, colleagues, students and other citizens.

As the population of the United States grows and becomes ever more globalized and culturally diverse, many people find themselves interacting more and more with people who are quite different from them. It is sometimes a challenge to know what to say, what to do, or how to respond to folks who, like us, bring their unique culturally-based expectations to the encounter. This is true in the classroom and in other fields of endeavor, and given the global village we find ourselves living in now, it is quite true of life in general.

The CRT Program at CCBC is unique among community colleges, 4-year colleges, and universities. It trains faculty and others by engaging them in self-reflective processes that allow them to convey to others—students, for example—the need for self-reflection, for self-awareness, for mindful engagement in life’s ever-changing cultural contexts. The CRT Program at CCBC emphasizes that because we human beings are the most social of animals, wherever human beings are, culture is always present. Our perceptions, interpretations, beliefs, and even our knowledge are culturally framed by our experiences in unique social networks of meaning making. Because perceptions of race are learned within bonded social-cultural networks, “race” too is always present and should be examined cooperatively and respectfully through dialogue.

Each seminar is held from 4:30-6:30 PM and takes a particular focus:

  1. Social Capital, School Learning, and Success (Feb 27)

  2. The Meanings of Culture and Race (March 27)

  3. Culture and Mindsets of Intelligence (April 24)

  4. Overcoming Stereotype Threat (May 15)

Other related topics are addressed, such as attribution theory, productive persistence, micro-aggression, intersectionality, identity contingencies, privilege and power, and the politics of English language variation.

Due to the nature of this workshop we ask that you do your best to commit to participating in all four workshops in the series. Please register for each of the workshop dates. Completion of the CRT Workshop will fulfill Phase I of the Teaching Academy's Certificate of Completion requirement.
