Right now is a critical time to pursue a holistic approach to equity, social justice, and inclusion. The center has developed the Racial Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion initiative designed to increase members of the CETE community’s knowledge and skills relevant to the posture and practice of cultural humility, identify and establish anti-racist norms, practices, and policies at CETE, and contribute to the dismantling of institutional racism within CETE’s spheres of influence. Explore professional development materials and resources to transform knowledge on these topics into meaningful action.
Being at the forefront of new learning technologies and the learners’ growing needs allows the center to develop and redesign professional learning experiences.
