What is a Data Coach?

Data Coaching is a campus initiative aimed at creating a culture of inquiry at Mt. SAC. Data coaches will be part of a cohort of faculty members who will provide direct support to their peers whereby educators work together to analyze student data, identify equity gaps, pilot new instructional strategies, and measure the impact of these new pedagogies on student outcomes.  Imparting this information on a cross-section of the faculty will lead to greater instances of collaborative inquiry at Mt. SAC.

How Data Coaches Contribute to Equity Work

Equity-Minded Curriculum Cohort

In this course, faculty will learn techniques for revising or developing a new Course Outline of Record (COR). By critically evaluating different elements of a COR through a DEISA+ (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Social Justice, Anti-Racism and other -ism) lens, we can work towards providing a more meaningful and equity-centered edcuational experience for our students.
