The California Community College Teacher Preparation Programs (CCCTPP) held a discussion focusing on EDUC Fieldwork classes for the next academic school year 2020-2021 on July 31, 2020 at 10-12pm. This meeting was to continue the ongoing discussion with higher education faculty, administration, and those who support higher education to consider plans for Education courses for fall 2020 to spring 2021. At this meeting, we heard CSU Updates on Fieldwork Requirements as well as School Reopening Plans in the state.  We also covered a new project, the Canvas Commons Project for EDUC Fieldwork Courses.  Attendees were asked to bring resources to share for high quality alternatives to in-person fieldwork to share in breakout sessions. Breakout sessions were arranged by grade level or topic including TK-3, 4-5, 6-8, 9-12 and a group for best practices related to online access and equity, with attendees selecting the breakout room of their choice.
