The Academic Senate for California Community Colleges is excited to invite you to Curriculum Institute 2020! The theme Responsive Curriculum & Collective Impact speaks to the need for curriculum and curriculum processes that are responsive and inclusive and the recognition that everyone – faculty, classified professionals, administrators, students, and more – is important in shaping curriculum and the impact it has on California community college students and communities.
This event will build on the 2015 CTE Curriculum Academy and is geared to help all participants better navigate state and local curriculum processes. Attendees will receive information and training on topics such as curriculum basics, effective practices for curriculum development, the Program and Course Approval Handbook, C-ID, and other aspects of curriculum development and approval. This event is only for Sector/Deputy Navigators, CTE faculty, and curriculum chairs. Registration is open now and is limited.
This year’s event includes a pre session option designed for new curriculum chairs, CIOs, and/or curriculum specialists. However, the more seasoned curriculum enthusiast may find it beneficial as well. Additionally, there will be a noncredit strand, a CTE strand, and a curricular innovations strand.
Last year’s theme was Everything Under the Sun, so this year, we have the dark side planned for you; welcome to the Curriculum After Dark. The Curriculum Committee has designed a program of essential information and navigational aids, process and procedural breakouts, as well as several veins you might explore including noncredit, career technical education, and technology. Often we become blinded by the myriad facets of our tell-tale regulations and structures that we may neglect such vital pathways to the same curricular core.
