12:30 pm - 1:55 pm General Session (REGENCY A, B, AND C)

Equity and Continuous Improvement

When we typically discuss equity training it is usually through the lens of something to be done and then magically checked off the list as if it was a destination. What we know is that for principles of equity to be effectively implemented all stakeholders must be in a continuous cycle of learning, research, implementation, and evaluation. Using Critical Race Theory (CRT) as the lens, participants will engage in meaningful dialogue regarding the different strategies used to transform the school, while deepening their understanding of the tenets of Critical Race Theory.

2:00 pm - 3:15 pm SESSION #1

Session 1.1 (REGENCY D)

Fully Online Community College (REGENCY D)

The Governor’s January budget proposal included the creation of an entirely online community college, designed to “provide critical educational and economic opportunities to specified adult working learners.” What would the creation of a 115th college mean for the future of instruction at the other 114 colleges? How would this impact local CTE and other programs that are fully or almost fully online? This session will focus on answering questions about the potential impacts of the creation of this new college.

Session 1.5 (CARMEL A & B)

Aligning Career Systems Using Human Centered Design (CARMEL A & B)

Cancelled

Strong Workforce, AEBG, Guided Pathways, SSSP, all require alignment, coordination and integration of services. But how to do this? This workshop will overview Human Centered Design, Design Thinking, and behavioral science and give examples of how these are being used around the country to align Adult Education, CTE and WIOA services for people needing skills and jobs. It will then describe the new Bay Area collaborative attempt to build new systems by starting first with our shared customers.

Whether you love, hate or are simply confused or intrigued by this idea, we want to hear from you.

Session 1.7 (TAHOE)

Leveraging Coworking Spaces as Partners for Work (TAHOE)

In this workshop, faculty and staff will learn about how to leverage an Entrepreneurial mindset to think differently about how to prepare students for the 21st century economy. We will highlight how coworking spaces can be used as a resource for innovative student learning in small business, entrepreneurship and work experience.

Session 1.9 (VENTURA)

Why Pass or Fail is Failing - A new way to assess and certify for MS Office, Adobe, and programming languages. (VENTURA)

For years the certification industry has provided solutions that don’t demonstrate the student’s full competency. The student that barely passes an exam receives the same certification as the one who masters the subject.

Daniel Bird with Isograd discusses the benefits of using Office and Digital Suite assessments and certifications that provide score-based results. Learn how the TOSA standard effectively evaluates a student’s proficiency and results in a more valuable certification that specifically shows the level of mastery.

Session 1.10 (TRINITY)

CTE Liaisons and Roles with Governance (TRINITY)

In the past few years, the ASCCC has passed a number of resolutions urging local senates to establish career technical education, legislative, noncredit, and guided pathways liaison positions. Where the liaison positions have been established, local senates are rewarded with stronger connections to local faculty and the work of the ASCCC at the state level. How can your involvement as a liaison make your senate stronger and more informed? The interactive presentation will be followed by discussion as a whole and in small groups to share the collective wisdom of the room and generate strategies all may consider. Bring your questions as we explore ways faculty can collaborate with the state and local academic senate to better support initiatives on their campuses.

We’ll show how the platform automatically gathers and analyzes data to assist these colleges to improve their Strong Workforce metrics. We will leave ample time for questions.

Session 2.2 (REGENCY E)

Guided Pathways (REGENCY E)

These days it’s virtually impossible to have a conversation at a community college without hearing reference to the Guided Pathways Programs across the state. With the Chancellor’s Office Guided Pathways Program providing funding that might result in far reaching changes in the system, and with the Guided Pathways movement appearing to gather more interesting, questions and uncertainties remain. The Academic Senate has taken a lead role to help college faculty and staff engage in dialogue about these efforts, and to provide resources and assistance. This breakout will look at some of the opportunities, challenges, and implications of the guided pathways framework.

Session 2.3 (BIG SUR A & B)

Pathways Through the Lens of Special Populations (BIG SUR A & B)

Work-based Learning as a Dynamic System (VENTURA)

Research shows that students who obtain quality work-based learning (WBL) experiences have a greater likelihood of persistence and completion. Too often, student access to WBL opportunities is determined by the strength of their familial or social networks, or a single faculty or staff person’s good will and employer connections. Join an exchange with leaders from a 32-college effort to build college and regional WBL systems that can support large-scale access to quality WBL opportunities.

Guided Pathways and Perkins Special Populations (SANTA BARBARA)

Historically, the majority of K-12 students have not been steered to the CTE pathways, nor have they received much guidance (other than from their CTE instructors) on how to reach their occupational goals. This is especially true for those students who are members of Perkins’ Special Populations, who often need extra supports to keep on track. This workshop will provide CTE faculty, counselors, program coordinators, and administrators ideas on how to effectively support these students.

Session 2.10 (TRINITY)

Partnering with Contract Education to UpSkill California (TRINITY)

Contract Education across the state of California has made tremendous forward movement to collaborate and focus on filling the industry-driven training service gaps across the state.

Mason Sage - As a part of my capstone Mechatronics degree I designed and built a fully functioning SCARA type robotic arm from scratch. I was inspired to use a SCARA based design due to the simplicity and wide range of applicability in the semiconductor industry. My goal is to incorporate machine vision, soft robotics and/or modular expansions for a wide range applications. Currently, it is equipped with a fully functioning 8-inch touch screen display which can be used to program discrete coordinate. Other forms of position control include the terminal (attached computer) or a preprogramed set routine. The set routine shown in these pictures was a simple pick and place operation. The microcontroller used was a PIC32 running Micromite software.
