Staff Resource Center for Professional Development & Educational Leadership
Dear Sacramento City College Colleagues:
Greetings SCC colleagues!
This week of September 30-October 6, professional development ranges across Distance Education and Instructional Development related to the learning management system and accessibility. See the calendar of events below.
Quote of the week
From a new book
“Physical Integration. Equitable schools are diverse ones, and they value their students’ differences and unique experiences with the world. In Chapter 1, we focus on integration efforts and broaden the lens from a focus on race and ethnicity to include class, gender, language, ability, religion, and sexual orientation.”
“The Equity Taxonomy”
by Dominique Smith, Nancy E. Frey, Ian Pumpian and Douglas E. Fisher
See the SCC Equity Framework for more information

Videos of the Week
Muthoni Drummer Queen
Muthoni Drummer Queen’s thought-provoking music fuses traditional African drum patterns with modern styles like hip-hop, reggae and blues.
Why you should listen
Muthoni Drummer Queen is the founder of two festivals in East Africa: Blankets & Wine, a platform for emerging and established “alternative” Kenyan and African artists that has since expanded to franchises in Uganda and Rwanda; and Africa Nouveau, an annual music and arts festival gathering creators, curators and fans of “African cool.”
In a hopeful talk followed by an empowering performance, musician and TED Fellow Muthoni Drummer Queen shares how industries like music, film and fashion provide a platform for Africans to broadcast their rich and diverse talents — and explains how the shared experience of creativity can replace attitudes of exclusionism and othering with acceptance and self-love.
