As equity is at the center of all of our effective or “best practices” in online learning we are grateful to our colleagues at Peralta Community College for sharing this professional development opportunity with us and pass it along in hopes that you will register and attend or view recorded sessions of interest to you:

We invite you to join us, the Peralta Community College District’s Online Equity Team, for our first Online Equity Conference that will take place virtually from April 21 to April 23, 2021. We welcome equity-minded students, educators, staff and leaders who represent colleges, universities, non-profit organizations and vendors from all around the world. Our goals are 1) to increase the visibility of all efforts to increase learning equity in higher education and 2) to bring together institutions that want to share and adopt equitable practices for all online students globally.

REGISTRATION: Please register via our online form. Conference participation will be FREE to make it accessible for everyone. Sessions will be spread throughout the day and recorded to accommodate busy schedules and global time zones. All you need to do is sign up!

Please spread the word in your communities and networks. Feel free to contact us with any questions at equity@peralta.edu. We look forward to seeing you in April!

Best wishes,

Peralta Equity Team

PCC offers this limited open forum as an extension of the respectful, well-reasoned discourse we expect in our classroom discussions. As such, we welcome all viewpoints, but monitor comments to be sure they stick to the topic and contribute to the conversation. We will remove them if they contain or link to abusive material, personal attacks, profanity, off-topic items, or spam. This is the same behavior we require in our hallways and classrooms. Our online spaces are no different.
