1. Become knowledgeable about equal employment opportunity (EEO) requirements and to promote understanding and support of EEO policies and procedures.

2. Assist in the implementation of the District’s EEO Plan in conformance with state and federal regulations and guidelines, to monitor EEO progress, and provide suggestions for Plan revisions as appropriate.

3. Sponsor events, trainings, or other activities that promote equal employment opportunity, nondiscrimination, retention, and diversity.

4. Assist the district in achieving its strategic initiatives related to diversity.

This is the final presentation of Hartnell’s 2019 Educator-in-Residence, Dr. Melissa Salazar, CEO of ESCALA Educational Services, Inc., which specializes in providing professional development for faculty, staff, and administrators at Hispanic Serving Institutions.

Assessing With Success in Mind: Using Cognitive Science to Boost Learning. What are assessments? How does one implement them? In her final talk, Dr. Salazar will apply recent findings from cognitive science to help students self-assess their learning and develop master learning skills. After a discussion of why many students have a lack of trust in traditional assessments, faculty will hear about current trends in assessment in higher education and consider if and how their assessment practices are aligned with recent cognitive science findings about learning and memory, and in addition take a closer look at how they can boost their self-assessment policies to impact student motivation and engagement in their courses.

July 29-31, 2019 ESCALA Summer Retreat for HSI Faculty (the kick-off event for faculty to earn a Certificate in College Teaching & Learning in Hispanic Serving Institutions). For more information, please contact Director of HSI Initiatives Moises Almendariz.
