This webinar is a conversation about the Ascend professional development model and new research into its use in California community colleges as a strategy for creating classroom cultures that promote equity. Within the context of an Ascend community of practice, faculty learn evidence-based practices and test the impact of those practices by iteratively collecting disaggregated survey data from students about their classroom experiences.
Researchers from Equity Accelerator share new California community college research into the use of evidence-based practices that foster Cultures of Growth in the classroom. The study found that professional development fostered classroom environments where students reported better experiences and more academic success. The presentation closes with practical examples and suggestions for how faculty can design Cultures
