Marie Boyd, Chaffey College
Lorraine Slattery-Farrell, ASCCC CTE Leadership Committee Chair

This year, the Strong Workforce Program incorporated accountability metrics
into its funding allocations to colleges and districts.

Carrie Roberson, Guided Pathways Task Force Chair, Facilitator
Julie Bruno, ASCCC President
Laura Hope, Executive Vice Chancellor for Educational Services
Ginni May, ASCCC Executive Committee Member

With the Chancellor’s Office’s Guided Pathways Award Program providing funding that might lead to potentially far-reaching changes in California’s community colleges, many questions and uncertainties about this reform require discussion and clarification to move forward with faculty support. This follow-up breakout to the general session will consider the intentions and potential implications of the Chancellor’s Office Guided Pathways Award Program and engage participants in Q&A with Laura Hope, Executive Vice Chancellor for Educational Services.

Equitable Equity: Breaking-Down Traditional Silos in Equity at CCCs
Dolores Davison, Equity and Diversity Action Committee Chair
Orlando Shannon, Lassen College
Michael Wyly, Solano College

Many of our most vulnerable students face significant challenges, including recent actions against the DACA program, potential changes to immigration policies, and the effects of events such as what occurred in Charlottesville. Colleges and legislators are questioning how and where curricular decisions may disproportionately impact our students. Yet, campus-wide conversations on equity and student success continue to mature differently, due in part to campus cultures and histories of engaging in  these  often difficult conversations. Join members of the Equity and Diversity Action Committee (EDAC) as we discuss the work and priorities of EDAC to invite ideas, strategies, and best practices from the field.

UC Transfer Pathways and Degrees
Jackie Escajeda, Chancellor’s Office
Craig Rutan, ASCCC Executive Committee Member
John Stanskas, ASCCC Vice President

The Academic Senate for California Community Colleges  engaged in dialogue with the University of California Academic Senate for the last 18 months on ways to facilitate transfer between the two systems. With the advent of UC Transfer Pathways providing guidance and curricular roadmaps for students to complete lower division preparation, the two senates investigated mechanisms to facilitate transfer utilizing these pathways. Join us for an update on the current state of UC Transfer Degrees and how they may benefit our students.

Engaging All Faculty in the Professional Life of the College
John Freitas, ASCCC Treasurer
Donna Necke, Mt. San Antonio College
LaTonya Parker, ASCCC Executive Committee Member

At the core of what we do as faculty is teaching and serving students.  However, beyond our core roles of teaching and providing services to students, what fully defines faculty is the engagement in the broader
professional life of the college. While such broad engagement is expected and ideal, the reality is that some in the faculty body are either unaware of their larger professional responsibilities, or are not afforded opportunities for such engagement . With many colleges developing noncredit programs, these efforts will also present the unique challenges of including noncredit faculty in the community college culture and leadership opportunities. Come to this breakout to engage in conversations about how to better involve all faculty in the broader professional life of the college.

Vendor: Advance with IEPI!
Barry Gribbons, Deputy Chancellor, College of the Canyons
Matthew Lee, Project Director, IEPI
Theresa Tena, Vice Chancellor, Chancellor’s Office

Learn the latest about how Institutional Effectiveness Partnership Initiative (IEPI) is advancing colleges and districts! At this session, presenters will discuss the latest on IEPI from technical assistance based on the interests identified by colleges, to Professional Learning Network delivery of information on effective practices, and workshops moving our colleges’ and districts’ teams from knowledge to concrete action. There will be meaningful dialogue about indicators driving goals and setting in a culture of evidence and making laws, regulations, and policy work better. The session will overall provide input and help shape the future direction of IEP.

11:15 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Break

11:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. SECOND BREAKOUT SESSION

Legislative Update
Wendy Brill-Wynkoop, College of the Canyons
Steve Cirrone, Sacramento City College
John Stanskas, ASCCC Vice President

The first year of the current legislative cycle is drawing to a close and several bills became law that will direct our service to students. In addition, the ASCCC Executive Committee adopted its legislative priorities as we continue to advocate for our students and faculty in academic and  professional matters. Join us for a lively discussion about all things Sacramento, as we look ahead to the next legislative year.

Civil Discourse: Why Us? Why Now?
Dolores Davison, ASCCC Secretary
Cynthia Reiss, West Valley College
Michael Wyly, Solano College

Since the November 2016 presidential election, significant discussion has taken place regarding the need for civic discourse and civil engagement across the United States, and while some faculty were quick to pick up on the issue, others were more reticent, in part because they may not believe that their disciplines lend themselves to this issue. How can faculty members integrate issues such as civic engagement into their classrooms while ensuring that their course content is fully covered?

Course Substitutions and Reciprocity in Local Degrees and Certificates, ADTs, and General Education
Randy Beach, Transfer Articulation, and Student Services Committee Chair
Dave DeGroot, Allan Hancock College
LaTonya Parker, ASCCC Executive Committee Member

The number of requests for course reciprocity among community colleges is increasing throughout the  state due to the number of students that attend more than one college. In this breakout, attendees will learn how to implement effectively a reciprocity process that can eliminate barriers for students while at the same time cut the cost of higher education and reduce the necessity of course repetition. This breakout will highlight resources available to the field for making these decisions.

Minimum Qualifications: The Basics and More
Emily Berg, Reedley College
John Freitas, ASCCC Standards and Practices Committee Chair
Lorraine Slattery-Farrell, ASCCC Executive Committee Member

What are minimum qualifications? What does it mean to possess the minimum qualifications or the equivalent for a discipline? Who makes these decisions at your college or district? What is the Disciplines List and how is it revised? If the answers to these questions do not immediately come to mind, come to this breakout to review the roles of local academic senates and the ASCCC in this important academic and professional matter. Participants will also be updated on the efforts of the ASCCC to address recommendations regarding faculty minimum qualifications from the Board of Governors’ Strong Workforce Task Force Task Force. 

A Fully Online Community College? An Update on the Work of the FLOW Workgroup
Cheryl Aschenbach, ASCCC Executive Committee Member
Michelle Pilati, Rio Hondo College

In response to Governor Brown’s call for a fully online community college, the Chancellor’s Office instituted the Flexible Learning Options for Workers (FLOW) Workgroup, which met in September and October.
Join faculty representatives to hear about the work of the group and the recommendations being considered for submission to the governor. Participants will also discuss potential impacts, positive and negative, on our students, faculty, and colleges.

Vendor: Professional Learning Network: Sharing Promising Practices to Improve Systemwide Success
Beth Kay, Director of Professional Development, Success Center for California Community Colleges
Kevin Wutke, Program Specialist, Success Center for California Community Colleges

The Professional Learning Network (PLN) is a clearinghouse of information about exciting programs throughout the California Community College system. It offers a place for colleges to share information about their own practices, as well as find information about other colleges’ innovative ideas. Come see a couple examples of excellent resources on the PLN,  and then participate in an open discussion about the exciting programs and practices happening at yours and other colleges, and how we can best gather and share that information for the rest of the system on the PLN.

Multiple Measures and Accurate Student Placement
Rebecca Eikey, ASCCC Executive Committee Member
Craig Rutan, ASCCC Executive Committee Member

For years, our colleges have used multiple measures when placing students into  mathematics, English, reading, and English as a Second Language courses.  The recent events such as the release of CSU Executive  Order 1110 and the passage AB 705 (Irwin) have increased the level of scrutiny on how colleges place students. Please join us for a discussion on use of multiple measures, including high school transcript data, Multiple Measures Assessment Project (MMAP), and Early Assessment Program (EAP) and other forms of placement assessments.

A question and answer period will follow the keynote presentation.

2:30 p.m. to 2:45 p.m. Break

2:45 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. THIRD BREAKOUT SESSION

Accreditation News
Misty Burruel, Chaffey College
Ginni May, Accreditation Committee Chair

During the past year, there were many changes in the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges such as a new president and vice-presidents, a new website, training re-envisioned, and a shift from a compliance-oriented process to one that is a collaborative peer review. The collaborative peer review supports the work of the colleges to continually improve the education and services that are provided to students. Please join us for an update on the changes that have taken place and an opportunity for dialog about the future of accreditation.

Guided Pathways: A Student Services Perspective
Randy Beach, Transfer, Articulation, and Student Services Committee Chair
LaTonya Parker, ASCCC Executive Committee Member

The principles of guided pathways require a strong partnership between the student services areas and all other areas on campus to work together to improve achievement and learning outcomes, regardless of where your college is in the creation and design of a guided pathways framework. In this breakout, we will discuss the role of student services faculty in designing a guided pathways framework.

Supporting Our Students: Resources and Strategies for DACA Students
Dolores Davison, Equity and Diversity Action Committee Chair
Marc LeForestier, General Counsel, Chancellor’s Office

The Trump administration’s actions to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and to enact federal immigration policies continue to disrupt our students’ lives, affect their welfare, and impact achievement of their educational goals. We must continue to do all we can to ensure DACA students’ access to education. The Chancellor’s Office and the ASCCC continue to disseminate information, strategies, and resources to support students, educators, and colleges as they struggle with the impact of these policy changes. In this session, General Counsel LeForestier will provide an update on Chancellor’s Office activities, federal policies impacting DACA students and our colleges, and strategies that we may employ to protect and support our students.

Noncredit Pathways to Career and Technical Education
John Freitas, Noncredit Committee Chair
Bernie Rodriguez, San Diego Continuing Education
Lorraine Slattery-Farrell, ASCCC Executive Committee Member

Noncredit programs serve our most diverse and vulnerable student populations, and there is great interest in providing these students with equitable opportunities to enroll in CTE programs alongside credit student populations . While some colleges have offered noncredit CTE programs for many years, the convergence of increased funding for Career Development College Preparation (CDCP) noncredit with the establishment of the Strong Workforce and Guided Pathways Award Programs created possibilities for expanding noncredit CTE offerings and expanding opportunities for students. In this breakout presenters will discuss the possibilities for noncredit CTE. Attendees will learn how one district provides robust CTE programs for its noncredit students.

What’s Happening with the Education Planning, Online Education, and Common Assessment Initiatives?
Conan McKay, ASCCC Executive Committee Member, Facilitator
Cheryl Aschenbach, Online Education Initiative Co-chair
Stephanie Dumont, Educational Planning Initiative Co-chair
Craig Rutan, Common Assessment Initiative Co-chair

Nearly five years into implementation of the initiatives heavily influenced by the 2012 Student Success Taskforce Recommendations, not everyone knows of the work being done and the ways in which the initiatives are shaping our system, impacting our students, and influencing our local colleges. Faculty leaders from each initiative will share the work of the Education Planning Initiative (EPI), Online Education Initiative (OEI) and Common  Assessment  Initiative  (CAI)  in  an  effort  to  help  local  leaders understand the tools and services are available to campuses.

Vision for Success: Local Implications
Julie Bruno, ASCCC President
John Stanskas, ASCCC Vice President

The Board of Governors adopted some ambitious and aspirational goals for the community college system—what does that mean for your college? And how do we translate the aspirational nature of these goals into concrete actions that serve our students well? This breakout session is a time for dialogue and discussion; join us and share strategies that have served you well locally.

4:15 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.  We Want You! Consider Statewide Service
Cheryl Aschenbach, ASCCC Executive Committee Member
Sam Foster, ASCCC Executive Committee Member
Conan McKay, ASCCC Executive Committee Member

If you have ever considered service to our students beyond your college, then participating on a state-level advisory group, task force, or committee might be an opportunity to expand your experience . The ASCCC depends on the faculty volunteers that it appoints to serve on statewide bodies to help us represent the faculty voice, but state-level service also benefits the volunteers themselves and their colleges. If you are curious about time commitments, responsibilities, and available committees, join us to find out how to become more involved at the state level and to hear some ways your college might support you in such activities.

4:30 p.m. Resolutions and Amendments Due

Basic Skills: How to Serve One of Our Most Vulnerable Populations
Randy Beach, ASCCC Executive Committee Member
Dolores Davison, Basic Skills Committee Chair
Orlando Shannon, Lassen College

One of the most vulnerable populations in the California community college system is that of basic skills students, who also happen to be among our most diverse groups. Serving this population of students creates new challenges due to external and internal pressures such as the integration of BSI/SSSP/Equity initiatives and funding, the introduction of guided pathways to the system, basic skills and noncredit, and basic skills instruction acceleration. This raises important questions inherent to basic skills. In this breakout, presenters will lead a conversation on system changes and external pressures that impact basic skills education at your college.

Supporting Part-Time Faculty
Sam Foster, Part-time Committee Chair
Caron Lieber, San Diego Continuing Education

Part-time faculty are an essential part of the fabric of the California community colleges. This breakout will examine ways part-time faculty may be supported both at local campuses, including examples of successful integration of part-time faculty into shared governance, and at the statewide level, including a discussion of ASCCC programs such as the Part-Time Faculty Leadership Institute. Please join us for an interactive discussion.

Hot Topics for Online Education
John Freitas, ASCCC Treasurer
Michael Heumann Imperial Valley College
Conan McKay, Online Education Committee Chair

Distance education classes are expected to provide students with an experience equivalent to face-to-face classes in all aspects including assessment, disability services, and orientation . Furthermore, online education programs are scrutinized to ensure that students in classes experience regular, effective, and substantive faculty-initiated contact, and that courses meet federal accessibility requirements. Join us for a discussion exploring effective practices for avoiding the landmines facing online education while providing our students with high quality online educational experiences.

Getting Students Through the Transfer Gate: Mapping the Transfer Landscape for California Community College Students?
Rebecca Eikey, ASCCC Executive Committee Member
Darla Cooper, Director of Research and Evaluation RP Group
Kristen Fong, Senior Researcher RP Group
Ginni May, ASCCC Executive Committee Member

With initiatives to improve transfer success taking root in the state, the RP Group is examining what else can be done to increase transfer for key populations. This session will introduce quantitative findings from the first phase of the RP Group’s “Through the Gate” Transfer Study, which addresses the following questions: “Who is transferring, who is not, and for what reasons? What can be done to facilitate this transition for significantly more students?” Supported by the College Futures Foundation, this research focuses on “high-leverage learners” whose course-taking shows them “at” or “near” the transfer gate, but who have not yet made it through to a four-year institution. We will discuss who these students are and explore with participants the factors that may impede their progress .

What’s New with Curriculum?
Cheryl Aschenbach, ASCCC Executive Committee Member
Jackie Escajeda, Dean of Intersegmental Programs and Credit Curriculum, Chancellor’s Office
Virginia Guleff, Vice President of Instruction, Butte College
Craig Rutan, Curriculum Committee Chair

Curriculum is always changing and this past year was no different. From the implementation of curriculum streamlining, the publication of the new Program and Course Approval Handbook (PCAH), and the launching of the new Curriculum Inventory (COCI), many things changed. Please join us for a discussion about what changed in the last year and where curriculum might be going in the year ahead.

C-ID CTE Pathways: Moving in a New Direction
Arineh Arzoumanian, C-ID CTE Director
Lorraine Slattery-Farrell, CTE Leadership Committee Chair
John Stanskas, ASCCC Vice President

Panel Presentation: Quantitative Reasoning: Here and Now
Kevin Baaske, General Education Advisory Committee Chair, CSU Los Angeles
Ginni May, ASCCC Executive Committee Member
John Stanskas, ASCCC Vice President

There were intense discussions and actions across the state within the community college system, at our partner institutions of higher education, and in the legislature about how to best prepare students in the area of quantitative reasoning. We will attempt to recap what transpired, what we know for certain, and what we do not know about how colleges should move forward in terms of general education and discipline specific preparation.

2:15 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Break

2:30 p.m. to 3:45 p.m. FIFTH BREAKOUT SESSION

Liaisons UNITE!
Carrie Roberson, ASCCC Executive Committee Member
Lorraine Slattery-Farrell, ASCCC Executive Committee Member

With new and existing funding allocated to student success initiatives in California community colleges, local college liaisons were identified to maintain faculty voice and involvement at the local level. How can your involvement as a liaison make your senate stronger and more informed? In this breakout, bring your questions as we explore ways faculty can collaborate with the state and local academic senate to better support initiatives on their campuses.

Statewide Professional Development Efforts: An Update
Cheryl Aschenbach, ASCCC Faculty Development Committee Chair
Julie Oliver, Cosumnes River College

While  the  development  of  professional  development  policies  is  a  10+1 matter for academic senates, senate leaders also play a role in influencing local professional development offerings. Attend this breakout to learn about statewide professional development efforts and opportunities that benefit faculty, including updates on the Community College Professional Development Program legislated by AB 2558 (Williams, 2014), free courses available through the ASCCC Professional Development College, efforts of the IEPI Professional Development Workgroup including Applied Solutions Kits (ASKs), online teaching and equity courses available through @ONE, and the expanse of options available through the Professional Learning Network. As part of the discussion, participants are encouraged to share their needs to influence future professional development efforts.

Faculty and Administrators: Building a Better Relationship
Julie Bruno, ASCCC President
Michelle Grimes-Hillman, Dean of Academic Affairs, Long Beach City College
David Morse, Vice President of Academic Affairs, Barstow College

Change can often strain relationships between faculty and administration, especially if those changes are in areas that affect senate and faculty purview. The good news is that many faculty transition to positions in administration and bring with them an understanding of faculty expertise. However, this type of situation also requires a renegotiation of relationships as people change their roles and perspectives . This session will examine how to create and sustain positive and genuine relationships between faculty and administrators in a time of change.

As new senate leaders how do we effectively navigate the community college shared governance landscape when we often find ourselves in unfamiliar territory? What “burning” questions do you have? This session will include activities to get participants involved in discussions about issues of common concern with fellow senate leaders.

OER and Z Degree
Dolores Davison, ASCCC Secretary
Michelle Pilati, Rio Hondo College, OER Task Force

What is the current status of the use of Open Educational Resources (OER) in the California community colleges? What barriers to the use of OER—real and imagined—exist, and what supports are in place, or in development, to assist in the adoption of OER? How, and why, should you invest in using OER in your teaching? The ASCCC OER Task Force worked on these questions and others, and will use this interactive session to discuss effective practices and share information from across the state.
