In this workshop, participants will gain a basic understanding of somatics, which involves using physical and breathing practices to help calm the nervous system and the mind. They will also learn somatic and mindfulness techniques that they can share with their students to support them in centering and co-regulating
The workshop will provide strategies for integrating these practices into both face-to-face and online teaching environments, with specific examples from my experience teaching ECON 221 – Principles of Microeconomics.
To further support attendees in their teaching and caregiving roles, I will also share information on Dovetail Learning’s We Are Resilient OER Resources. These free resources are available to educators, parents, families, and healthcare staff, and can provide additional tools for promoting resilience and well-being.

Faculty members in the “YES/Your Equity Squad” program are engaging in a two-semester-long community of practice focused on applying diversity, equity, inclusion, and antiracism principles to their online teaching and course design. Facilitated by Distance Education Coordinator Maritez Apigo at Contra Costa College, this community of practice is designed to promote deep learning and transformational change in the classroom.
In this showcase, participants will have the opportunity to learn from the experiences and successes of these faculty members as they share how they have applied culturally sustaining pedagogies and radical love in their teaching. By centering student voices and perspectives, these faculty members have created more inclusive and supportive learning environments.
Audience members can expect to take away a range of practical and impactful practices for making their own students feel seen and heard. By implementing these strategies, we can work towards creating more equitable and empowering learning environments for all.

Inclusive learning environments acknowledge and value student diversity, enabling the worldview and experiences to enrich learning. Social learning is one of the most effective methods for reducing isolation, increasing active participation, and building positive classroom communities. In order to yield these benefits, however, social learning must provide scaffolding for both social interactions and subject matter. In this workshop, we will discuss the elements of social learning that foster equitable group participation and explore ways to integrate these features into classroom activities.
