Fall semester at Crafton began with four days of workshops, trainings, meetings, and professional development opportunities to prepare for the upcoming semester. Crafton’s virtual opening/in-service day was held on Wednesday, August 12. The welcome session began at 9:00 a.m. via Zoom and was immediately followed by a “Race, Healing and Action” panel presentation. An afternoon session launched the College’s inaugural One Book/One College program and introduced the book Spare Parts. The session provided an overview of how the College will be threading this novel and issues of equity and inclusion through curriculum and activities throughout the 2020-21 academic year.
The CHC Professional Development Committee created themes for each day, which included Pajama Party, Aloha, 80’s Flashback, and Superheroes Day. The content for flex and the three in-service days that followed focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion; remote online teaching; and student services. The schedule also included breaks and time to work on Planning and Program Review documents, Student Learning Outcomes, and Guided Pathways.
