Lakshmikanta Sengupta

Great metaphor Dr. Hotep!
Edmundo Norte he/him/ese
36:09
Hmm. From a critical lens, from a grounded Ethnic Studies lens, another perhaps even more fundamental question at an earlier age is, How do we nurture and support the inherent love of learning present in every human being?
Edmundo Norte he/him/ese
37:08
What are we doing, institutionally, that diminishes our natural propensity and love of learning?
Terrence Mullens

calling Jackie Reza in the room! 😍 her veterana wisdom has planted seeds that we need to continue harvesting

Michele LeBleu-Burns

Great Analogies Dr. Hotep!! You are right on!!👍🏾
Marc
43:11
I am so thankful that my undergrad education was at an HSI, where success was expected, and our lived experiences were central to the pedagogy and college experience.
Edmundo Norte he/him/ese
45:05
Yes, Dr. Hoptep, how we define the problem determines the possible solutions.
Terrence (aka Alicia) Mullens (They/Them)

Bueler… Bueler… Bueler???

Did someone say F the F132 model…?
Terrence (aka Alicia) Mullens (They/Them)

Edmundo Norte he/him/ese
49:07
How do we humanize our relations with students, with each other?
Ravjeet Singh
50:05
@ Edmundo: Exactly. The way that professor was teaching can drive any one away. Economics can and is very very interesting!!!
Edmundo Norte he/him/ese
50:20
^^+
Edmundo Norte he/him/ese
51:00
Economics touches and shapes every aspect of our lives, how do we make these connections to our real, everyday lives?
Terrence (aka Alicia) Mullens (They/Them)
51:02
You hit the nail on the head Edmundo… we need to humanize this whole process. My students are people… not numbers!
Edmundo Norte he/him/ese
51:20
We HAVE many instructors who do this!
Monika Thomas
51:27
excellent examples of Victor Rios
Edmundo Norte he/him/ese
52:22
You are doing it Terrance 🙏

Terrence (aka Alicia) Mullens (They/Them)
54:12
That’s HUGE!!! We need to celebrate diversity, but explain why we should be celebrating it.
Edmundo Norte he/him/ese
54:24
And, we all have ways we can be more effective, and we need each other learn and inspire each other.
Lisa Markus
55:17
(I’m form the U.K.) - be VERY careful crossing the road!
Laura Chin
56:19
Who We Be is a FANTASTIC book btw
Edmundo Norte he/him/ese
56:47
Absolutely Dr. Hoptep! The most pervasive and pernicious form of internalized oppression that we all carry to some extent is the fundamental frame of RIGHT/WRONG, binary, dualistic world view. This shapes every effort and intention that follows and determines the impact we have.
K. Mikel Williams
58:11
Sun Down Towns still exist in Illinois and Ohio
Terrence (aka Alicia) Mullens (They/Them)
58:40
We didn’t even have marriage equality until 6 years ago, and many states are actively seeking to take away the rights of Trans people today.
Julie Keiffer-Lewis
58:54
Sun Down towns also still exist here, in CA. Being Black in the US is not easy!
Edmundo Norte he/him/ese
59:19
And we are seeing an overt resurgence of the same mindset, attitudes, assumptions and beliefs reflected in that Texas sign.
Ravjeet Singh
59:58
Gender discrimination at its worst when we see those lines
Elvin T. Ramos (he/him/his/siya)
01:00:30
We welcome any questions for Dr. Hotep - please go ahead and put on chat. We will conduct Q&As at the top of the hour. Thank you.
Edmundo Norte he/him/ese
01:01:03
Restrooms: Great, relatable, example of this disproportionate impacts.
Megan Ulbricht
01:02:03
Great analogy
Lindsay Merrill
01:02:17
Agreed- Excellent analogy.
Andrew Phelps
01:02:42
We must move towards a new cultural level that engages the habits tnatare insufficient explanations.

Great explicit naming of what Equity means!
Terrence (aka Alicia) Mullens (They/Them)
01:10:12
“It’s okay… I have a black friend.” Kind of mentality.
Nicky Yuen
01:12:23
I would love to hear examples of institutions that have done the top to bottom transformation that is obviously so necessary. We have long known that our outcomes are unsatisfactory. We also have long known that much of our pedagogy and institutional structures are not working. But what DOES work? What has institutional transformation looked like in places you have worked? What results and processes have you seen that we could look at and try to learn from to transform our own institutions?
Julie Keiffer-Lewis
01:12:37
Thank you!
Fatemeh Yarahmadi

Diana Ferrara
01:17:42
so true
Maristella Tapia
01:17:54
Thank you Dr. Hotep. I found the term “obligation gap” to be an excellent paradigm shift. I am wondering if you can explain that to us. Also I’d love to hear the answers to Nicky’s question ^
Ashidhara Das
01:18:06
Thank you for your very helpful pedagogical guidelines.
Lindsay Merrill
01:18:11
Yes! Thank you! I come from a math education background and find myself “less qualified to teach college” in many institution’s views because my decree says “education” at the end.
Lindsay Merrill

Scripted curricula that is implemented without question by the practitioner (K-12)
mae lee (she/friend)

^^^ Yes, to Mari's question (and Nicky's)...and big thanks to Dr. Hotep!
Andrew Phelps
01:20:14
I think about the Afghan man who changed the way we do math (he wrote Al-jabr in 9th century), today Afghan society faces exceptional violence, yet has a deep character
Ravjeet Singh
01:20:27
Would luv to hear response to Nicky’s question!
Dr. White
01:21:35
What we consider as "Classical Music" was brought to Europe by the Moors,
Mariam Ebrat

@Prof Andrew Phelps, I’m from Afghanistan, thank you for mentioning that.

Ravjeet Singh

@ Wendy White: Wow, I didn’t know that!!
Edmundo Norte he/him/ese
01:23:42
Thanks for making the historical connections Professor Phelps and Professor White, so important to know and make these connections to help us reframe our understanding.
Diana Alves de Lima
01:24:47
Tutoring!
Andrew Phelps
01:25:00
Yes, Mariam, and his other contribution takes up social creativity in our own day and place ( in a different frame ), we call that the Algorithm
Nadia Bensidi
01:28:34
His name is El Khawarism. the word algorithm actually comes from el khawarism

Mariam Ebrat
01:30:13
@ Prof. Phelps, rare to hear an Afghan being given academic cred so thank for the small gratification.
Edmundo Norte he/him/ese
01:30:58
Pedro Noguera was a professor friend of mine at grad school at UCB when he was still teaching there and serving on the Berkeley school board. he offered me an Incomplete grade when I really needed it as a single parent of two toddlers. He walks the talk . . .
Julie Keiffer-Lewis
01:31:34
Speak on it!
Dr. White
01:32:05
Thank you brother Hotep!
Dr. White
01:33:51

Data is not enough... we can stare at the data all day and for many years.... thank you for this Dr. Hotep…. conscious individual and collective action is critical... intention and praxis!
Edmundo Norte he/him/ese
01:38:07
And part of our charge as engaged members of our society and world, is to prepare and support our students to become caring, critical-thinking, collaboratively capable agents of social transformation to create a healthier more loving world. Business as usual means to perpetuate a fundamentally inhumane world.
Edmundo Norte he/him/ese

Susmita Sengupta
01:39:28
Students are not the focus in hiring although students are the most important stake holder !
Diana Alves de Lima
01:39:39
Yes the whole process needs deep rethinking
Edmundo Norte he/him/ese
01:39:43
Yes, Professor Tabia Lee!
Andrew Phelps
01:40:02
Good talk. And Al Khwarismi represents a different facet of Afghan culture
Bridget James
01:40:09
Great talk! Thank you!
Edmundo Norte he/him/ese
01:40:51
@Susmita Sengupta, I’ve seen that up close, and we need to shift many institutional practices and structures.
Cynthia Kaufman
01:41:21
like always having students on hiring comittees

Nicky Yuen
01:43:12
Here’s a thought: I would love to bring in a discussion of institutional power here. Who controls the shape of the institution? Who controls the resources? Who shapes the questions? At De Anza, we have not fully committed to a process of power sharing. While administrators have a huge and very challenging job with no easy solutions, with the exception of some amazing deans (shout out to Elvin and Alicia), most administrators are not very interested in sharing even information, much less actual power. If we are to be responsible for outcomes, we must also have the authority to re-align institutional structures, resources, etc. And not just at a token level. For example, if we want to engage students in decision-making, we must train them, pipeline them, and give them the time and other resources to participate successfully. We don’t really seem to be fully committed to this here.
Susmita Sengupta
01:43:57
Or have a write up as how they visualize creating a lesson with reference to the lectures, assignments related to the topic that provides a holistic approach !
Terrence (aka Alicia) Mullens (They/Them)
01:43:59
I wish there was a way to further include students in the evaluation process as well (I’m thinking more so about a student who is NOT taking my class comes in an evaluates me… maybe someone from DASG… Student Evals are crucial, but I think that grades cause some bias in the process).
Ravjeet Singh
01:44:36
Very well said Nicky!! We are indeed very fortunate to have Dr. Ramos as the Dean but we do need more commitment and the right attitude from the Senior Administration
Diana Alves de Lima
01:45:25
We need to bring students into all the power structures, not just as representatives on committees but on a deeper level
Terrence (aka Alicia) Mullens (They/Them)
