Online Teaching and Learning Committee

 

The Online Teaching and Learning Committee serves as a consultative body on matters of student success, academic policy, course and program development, course and instructor evaluation, as well as instructor training as they pertain to online education.  It makes recommendations to the Academic Senate.  Recognizing and appreciating the diverse collection of identities, experiences, perspectives, and abilities of the students, faculty, staff, and community partners with whom we collaborate, the Online Teaching and Learning Committee commits itself to enriching academic experiences through the advancement of inclusion, diversity, equity, anti-racist, and anti-oppressive practices.
