Rachel's Recommended Reading
"You Get the Learning You Expect" by Regan A. R. Gurung on The Teaching Professor.
This is a great summary of some important concepts that can influence the way you interact with your students. I hope this article inspires some reflection on your teaching!
The Blended Course Design Workbook by Katheryn E Linder
This workbook is a great step-by-step guide to creating a brand new course for a Hybrid format, or for adjusting your existing course for Hybrid classes. The book is available from the CCRI Library as an ebook or physical copy from the CTE book collection. Linder's website also has digital versions of the worksheets embedded in the book and helpful extras for faculty.
Two copies of the book are available in the CTE Library Collection. Activate your ID as a library card here or at any CCRI Library Circulation Desk.

Disaggregated Data Requests
In February 2022, I (Rachel) was able to see my course data for General Psychology (a course I have taught many times here at CCRI) disaggregated by race and ethnicity. The results were surprising and difficult for me to face. Despite that, I’m very glad that I did it, and I’m looking forward to trying some new strategies in my courses to try to close the equity gaps I found.
If you’d like to check out your own course data, request a meeting here to get started.
This is a confidential process and is for your professional development only. Results are not shared with chairs, deans, or the VPAA.
