What To Expect from CTL-HSI
This course is unique in that it provides faculty with an opportunity to work with other HSI faculty and have long-term facilitated conversations with coaches that help them reflect on how they are doing with all students and complete an inquiry in their classroom in order to improve student engagement and learning.
The Certificate is delivered in two parts. The first component is a three-day summer retreat where faculty come together at a location in New Mexico, Texas or California to study their own identity as professors, patterns in their teaching, their institutions' norms, and learn more about Hispanic Serving Institutions as a whole.
The is not your ordinary 'sit and get' workshop! During the 3 days of the Retreat, you'll immerse yourself in learning about best practices by participating in real-time demonstrations of classroom strategies that work for HSI students, and by investigating student success and equity in your own courses through video and data analysis. Faculty are required to bring data, actively participate in demonstrations of culturally responsive teaching, and come up with a solid plan for an inquiry project in a course they are teaching in Fall.
