Online Equity Training

What is the Peralta Online Equity Training?

The Peralta Equity Training is a professional development  course. The Peralta DE Team created 8 training modules–one to address each rubric criterion–that follow the same pattern:

  • Learn: Review what each criteria is, why it matters, and how to address it.
  • Analyze: Explore a sample course element to determine which equity rubric criteria it addresses and to discuss how to make it better.
  • Build: Create your own materials, activities, or course elements to address equity issues in your own courses.

Why did the district create this Equity Training?

After creating the Peralta Equity Rubric, the district needed a way to help faculty to (re)design courses so that they align with the eight equity rubric criteria. A Peralta DE Team member facilitates the training to cohorts of faculty who give each other feedback and encouragement.
