We needed more time! :-)
Jean Mittelstaedt
01:23:37
When we meet F2F, I ask students to say their names on the first day of class to take roll.
Seth Bloombaum
01:24:01
Likewise in remote instruction.
Seth Bloombaum
01:24:22
Some may intro themselves in chat, depending.
christine.weber15
01:24:32
Yes, Samm! I wish all disciplines had this built into their contact hours.
Bryan Rockwell (SY)
01:24:42
There are ways to supplement one-on-one meetings during remote instruction, including 5-minute check-in surveys :)
Shirlee Geiger
01:24:52
Ooooo, a good thing to push for when we next bargain!!
christine.weber15
01:25:02
Yes, Shirlee!!!!!
sandy sampson
01:25:23
YES!!!!
Shirlee Geiger
01:25:48
I am adding meeting time to the bargaining issues tracker now!
Taryn Oakley
01:26:02
Great idea!
christine.weber15
01:26:34
Shirlee, Thank you so much! That would be a powerful shift.
Tanya Littrell (she,they)

Thank you!
Martha Bailey (she)
01:55:33
Or if the dog chews your charging cord as happened to one of my students
christine.weber15
01:56:31
I 100% agree. Thank you for stating that, Samm.
PCC Laura Horani (she/her)
01:57:24
transparency means you are up front about saying when you don't know something but you'll find out.
sandy sampson
01:59:57
That’s a great idea Anna
Sean Peterson
02:00:07
Good point, Anna
christine.weber15
02:00:08
I agree, Anna!
Bryan Rockwell (SY)
02:00:15
Excellent point, Anna!
Andrew Gibbs
02:00:44
I have had many students tell me that other instructors are not being lenient on things like due dates right now.
PCC Laura Horani (she/her)
02:02:06
It's a balance between protecting your work/life balance and not making yourself crazy with work trickling in
PCC Laura Horani (she/her)
02:02:47
I just told a faculty member that statement about the real world is how we have all be tainted by white supremacy culture.
Shirlee Geiger
02:02:58
Having worked in HR in a business, my message is that LOTS of jobs are relational. There is no "ordinary" job -- lots of different circumstances.
Kim Smith
02:02:59
An important question.
PCC Laura Horani (she/her)
02:03:07
Yes, Shirlee
Anna Truxes (she/her, they/them)
02:03:19
I have worried that my flexibility was an in service, but I’ve come to the conclusion that they will not be harmed by my collaborative space.
Andrew Gibbs
02:03:26
I can answer...
Stephanie Bryan
02:03:58
I feel like "real jobs" often have flexibility. Or should in the future we want to create and we are creating the new leaders
Sean Peterson
02:04:15
^^^
Carol Gonzalez
02:04:23
Irene, I appreciate your willingness to bring up an edgy question!
PCC Laura Horani (she/her)
02:04:25
Yes, Stepanie.
PCC Laura Horani (she/her)
02:04:38
I appreciate you, too, Irene. :-)
Samm Erickson (he/him)
02:05:02
Yes, Irene - we don't want adherence to dogma. Thank you for the question.
elenavilla
02:05:14
I feel like students need understanding BUT also need to learn to respect other peoples’ boundaries and how their behavior affects others. I acknowledge care givers and people with children on my syllabus in my late work policy.
Natalie Mix
02:05:15
Maybe we can balance the flexibility and deadlines? Have deadlines but then give each student a late pass or drop lowest quizzes/assignments, etc.
Stephanie Bryan
02:05:17
I do appreciate the conversation though. And agree that there are a few situations that need deadlines. Vaccines for example.
Cara Lee (she/they)
02:05:18
Many agreements can be negotiated/changed in the real world. I think communication about getting an extension is a very valuable skill to develop. That's what I try to teach my students with my flexible policy. I have very high expectations that go with the flexibility.
Laura Smoyer (she/her)
02:05:38
Re deadlines: We also need to balance our time limitations as instructors and individuals, and make a system where we are not working harder than our students. As hard, yes, not harder.
PCC GD Iyer (she, her hers)
02:05:54
I think many of our students do work and they do have a good idea of deadlines. So, perhaps we could help them by using deadlines to guide them than penalize them!
Jean Mittelstaedt
02:06:43
I completely discarded my late work policy. As long as students communicate, I accept all work until the end of the term. I encourage students to complete work thoroughly, not quickly, to meet a deadline and that I will help them if they need it.
Samm Erickson (he/him)
02:06:51
I also wonder how much my 4 hours a week over 11 weeks can ingrain that practice.
Heather Lubay (She/They)
02:06:57
My take is that nowhere in the CCOGs does it tell me that it is my responsibility to also teach life skills, so tying timeless to their grades is assessing something that is not part of the outcomes.
Taryn Oakley
02:07:13
You can put a due date but not have it close
PCC Laura Horani (she/her)
02:07:19
I do that, too, Jean, when I teach.
Tanya Littrell (she,they)
02:07:42
Grading for Equity is a great read around this discussion. My Exercise Science team has explored this book together in Fall term. It's been transformative for our group grading policies.
Jean Mittelstaedt
02:07:49
@Heather Lubay: I wish we could "like" chat posts!
Valerie Limbrunner-Bartlett
02:07:50
I believe there is crossover of both areas. Being flexible may help to grow understanding about planning and timelines as well. We can help them build this skill while in college to apply it in their career.
Sean Peterson
02:07:51
Jean, yes
Samm Erickson (he/him)
02:08:01
Yay, that's a great book Tanya!
Stephanie Bryan
02:08:07
I agree Heather!
Seth Bloombaum
02:09:24
Helping students build life skills should not involve inequitable grading punishment.
Tanya Littrell (she,they)
02:09:58
Grading life skills when you don't know everything about their life, bring inequities to grading.
Valerie Limbrunner-Bartlett
02:10:01
Yes, college is where we can work on it together!
Natalie Mix
02:10:01
It can add a large burden to the instructor to have different assignments to grade scattered all throughout the term. Also, if you want students to be able to view their past quizzes or exams and thus the answer keys then it is difficult to allow other students to still be taking them after the keys have been posted. It is really difficult to find the balance.
Diedre Cain
02:10:11
Yes to Heather. II feel my job is to facilitate learning, not to be strict for no reason other than that students might encounter hard and fast deadlines elsewhere in the future.
Pam Kessinger - she/her
02:10:41
Grading for Equity by Joe Feldman is available as an e-book at the PCC library: https://alliance-primo.hosted.exlibrisgroup.com/permalink/f/crbtm7/CP71330487210001451
PCC GD Iyer (she, her hers)
02:10:47
So, Natalie, you bring up a good point. And that should bring us to the discussion of how we assess - formative and summative!
Natalie Mix
02:11:30
Absolutely. And sometimes depending on what we are teaching we may have rigid rules within our discipline or SAC with how we can assess.
Anna Truxes (she/her, they/them)
02:11:40
Do we have and/or can we create a shared drive for the resources people are putting in the chat?
Samm Erickson (he/him)
02:12:05
Hi Anna - we'll download the chat and add the resources to the padlet.
christine.weber15
02:14:05
Thanks, Samm! @AnnaTruxes there’s an Art SAC discussion group about the Feldman book happening this year. You can jump into the group if interested.
PCC Laura Horani (she/her)
02:14:34
Working across disciplines is cool and I am looking forward to our systems of assignments and pay catching up to interdisciplinary work.
christine.weber15
02:15:11
Yes! Me too, Laura! It seems structurally challenging sometimes at PCC.
Jean Mittelstaedt
02:16:37
I have adapted both Writing 115 and 122 to total use of OER.
PCC Laura Horani (she/her)
02:17:00
And who are the learners - if you are doing work between ESOL students and Gen Ed students - it's not always the ESOL students who should be seen as lacking and in need of learning.
Jean Mittelstaedt
02:17:33
@Laura Horani: I agree!
Ben Buswell
02:33:42
Yes. There is a time crunch. Faculty cannot solve this. Admin can by compensating faculty (esp PT) for out of class work and self directed professional development.
Tanya Littrell (she,they)
02:35:09
Yes, Ben. We need to figure out how to create capacity for faculty and staff to engage in this work.
Seth Bloombaum
02:35:43
Unable to stay late - thanks for a great session!
Valerie Limbrunner-Bartlett
02:36:02
I have another meeting to join. Thank you so much for the great discussion!
Taryn Oakley
02:36:47
Thanks! I have to jump on a 1:00. This was great!
Anna Truxes (she/her, they/them)
02:37:44
if you will, please share the quote about a gratitude for students?
Tanya Littrell (she,they)
02:38:07
Thank you! I have to jump off to help my daughter get lunch ;)
Jennifer Vernon
02:38:24
Thank you for an enlightening session!
Jordan Laurent
