Sweeney Hall was buzzing with excitement on Friday, December 6, 2019, as hundreds of SJSU Lurie College of Education undergraduate, graduate, credential, and doctoral students shared their academic accomplishments and insights to peers, faculty, staff, family, friends, and community partners during the inaugural Learning Showcase. The showcase was established to build upon the end-of-semester academic celebrations that many of the Lurie College of Education departments had organized in previous semesters by organizing a college-wide event to demonstrate how the Lurie College of Education and its students are interdisciplinary, community-engaged, culturally-sustaining, and holistic, according to Dean Heather Lattimer. The event began with a wide range presentation panels such as “Advising Idol – A Friendly Video Competition to Support Student Success” and “Voice Care Workshop for Educational Professionals + Mini Clinic for Voice Screening” before transitioning to poster presentations and other stations such as “Film Making as a Research Method” and “Special Education Lesson Plan Gallery Walk.” The grand finale of the Learning Showcase was the plenary session, which featured a student or small group of students from each academic department in the Lurie College of Education who spoke to a crowd of about 75 attendees about their academic research, experiential education, and more! Plenary speakers included:
