STAR-CA Tutor and Student Panel: What’s On Our Minds? Preparing to Return to Campus

Before the pandemic, 1 in 4 community college students sought academic support from a tutoring center, and less than 15% of those tutoring sessions happened online. In the past 14 months, we have all put our tutoring programs online and trained our tutors to collaborate effectively and compassionately with online students. Most programs have experienced significantly higher volume of students seeking help online simply because there were no in-person options available to them. When campuses reopen, will students continue to seek online tutoring support now that they have more experience with it? Have they become accustomed to the convenience and comfortable with the technology? Join our tutor and student panel to hear what they say about the differences between online tutoring and in-person tutoring and how they feel about continued support of online tutoring.

How do you know if your online students are learning when you can’t see them? The short answer is: meaningful assessment.

While many people link assessments to grades, the real power of assessing our students is the insight we can get from the results. When we examine our students’ performance, we can identify what they’ve mastered and where they may still need help. Section C of the OEI Course Design Rubric provides a framework to help you design an assessment process that supports teaching and learning through thoughtful formative and summative assessments and rich feedback.

The Pope Tech Instructor Accessibility Guide for the Canvas LMS platform reviews Canvas pages for potential accessibility errors and prompts content authors with the necessary changes to fix issues.

Powered by the same rules as the WAVE accessibility checker, the Instructor Accessibility Guide helps instructors make changes directly within their Canvas pages to create more accessible content.

The Pope Tech Instructor Guide assists in scaling accessibility support for your institution as this tool identifies the accessibility errors and provides an explanation of what the accessibility error means, why it matters, and how to fix it.

The Instructor Accessibility Guide is made available at no cost to California Community Colleges through the CCC Accessibility Center license.

In this webinar, participants will learn how to:

    • Run the Pope Tech Accessibility Guide on a Canvas page
    • Apply the recommended changes
    • And for Canvas Administrators or Faculty Support Roles - learn how to request Pope Tech Instructor Accessibility Guide for your institution

Please join us live - this webinar will not be recorded. The Accessibility Office Hours offer the opportunity to ask questions and share best practices regarding web, document, and assistive technology accessibility issues. Audience participation is welcome!
