Dear colleagues,
We are excited to share this year’s 3CSN Fall Newsletter with you. This newsletter is  traditionally distributed during the Strengthening Student Success Conference, but like the conference, we too have gone virtual.
Although we miss seeing you at our in-person events, we are even more appreciative to see you online with us. Together, in community, we are finding our way through these unprecedented times. 
The newsletter highlights the great work of our network- the practitioners who are continuing to strive for student success in our community colleges.
We hope you enjoy seeing familiar faces, remembering our statewide events, and learning more about our extensive online offerings that have reached over 7,000 participants since March.
3CSN is humbled by your eagerness to learn with us.
With appreciation and hope for a healthier time- we thank you all!

Fall 2020 Courses Using Zero Cost Textbooks (OER) or Low Cost Textbooks (Enrollment, Equity, Student Success)

Dear Colleagues,

As we continue to focus on equity, student success and enrollment, Academic Affairs is interested in ensuring we are capturing all of our courses that use “Zero Cost” Textbooks (OER) or “Low Cost” textbooks (textbooks that can generally be purchased under $50) and that currently do not have the “Zero Cost” or “Low Cost” logo listed in our online schedule in PeopleSoft. This is especially important for our late-start 8-week classes as we continue to increase our enrollment and support equity and student success (For more information, please see California State Senate Bill 1359).

Students are able to filter and search for “Zero Cost” or “Low Cost” courses in our online schedule not only across our campus but also across the LACCD district.

If your course does not have the “Zero Cost” or “Low Cost” logo and you use a “Zero Cost” or “Low Cost” textbook, please complete this survey by Friday October 16, 2020. Please complete one form for each section you teach that qualifies. Please only submit if you are requesting one of these logos be added to your course section in our online schedule this semester (Fall 2020).

Ideally, we should note that we are using “Zero Cost” or “Low Cost” when we are participating in the college-wide galley process or after a class offer has been accepted, we can notify our Division Chair and copy our Division Dean via e-mail with our course sections and designations.

The college will continue to review this process. For suggestions or questions, please contact me, our campus ASCCC OER Liaison at Cuomoa@laccd.edu

Thank you,

Anthony

Dear 3CSN Wayfinding Community,

We hope this email finds you well. To be transparent, it’s been a heavy week. As we process the loss of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, we may draw strength from her words:

“Real change, enduring change, happens one step at a time.”“So often in life, things that you regard as an impediment turn out to be great, good fortune.”

As we prepare for the week, let’s keep these words in mind. Our work is all the more urgent.

Wayfinding OnlineNavigating the Virtual Landscape Together Fall Design Lab Series

Dear 3CSN Wayfinding Community,

We hope that this email finds you well and safe.

Over the summer we offered a series of free four-part Design Labs to provide community college professionals and students the opportunity to come together with colleagues across the state to delve more deeply into course and program design. The response was overwhelming, and these sessions reached capacity quickly. Many of you asked for an opportunity to participate in the fall.

We are pleased to let you know that registration is now open for these fall Design Labs!
Professional learning badges will be awarded for completion and may be used for flex credit (check with your campus for eligibility). Read more about these sessions and register below! Each registration covers all four sessions.
Updated Title and Dates!

Wayfinding Online: Navigating the Virtual Landscape TogetherZoom Session Schedule 9.15.20 – 9.18.20


Dear 3CSN Wayfinding Community,
It is hard to find the words to express our solidarity with you in this moment while much of our state is on fire in the midst of a pandemic.
In Madeline St. Amour’s article “Building Community,” she highlights community colleges’ unique ability to build community, featuring our own MiraCosta College. This line resonates:
“What it boils down to is that community colleges know that relationships matter, and they really focus on that.”
Indeed we do! We are beyond grateful for our amazing network of community college faculty, staff, students, and administrators across the state who truly understand the power of relationships as well as the urgency of supporting the most vulnerable among us. Collectively, we have the tools and heart to not only get through this moment, but to emerge as a stronger, more impactful system.
To help us navigate these waters, Civic Dialogues begins this week, and there’s still time to register! You can register below. Read more about this seven-part series here
Need a space to center yourself, reflect, and share from the heart? Join us for Mindfulness for Educators.
