• Disrupting Deficit Narratives Through
    Equity-Minded Practice


    • Check back soon for upcoming workshop dates.

    As a precursor to student engagement, motivation matters. The literature is overrun with deficit thinking about diverse students, their families, cultures, socioeconomic background, abilities, and communities. Educators frequently lament about how to motivate students to “care” about their learning. Yet, very few have the opportunity to participate in the work needed to foster the equity mindedness to disrupt these deficit narratives.

    AVID for Higher Education invites you to a workshop addressing the following:

    • How do the assumptions about students, their families, and communities affect practice and student success?
    • What instructional and institutional equity-based practices promote student success for all students?
    • What strategies can help faculty and staff effectively manage conflict, microaggressions, and hot topics in the learning environment?

  • The Intersection of Equity and Pedagogy:
    Changing the Narrative for Diverse College Students

    Open to college educators (both partners and non-partners), this one-day workshop was co-developed by the AVID for Higher Education team and the Community College Equity Assessment Lab.

    AVID for Higher Education (AHE) and the Community College Equity Assessment Lab (CCEAL), invite you to a workshop focusing on improving instructional practices and systems that open doors of opportunity for diverse learners, addressing the following:
