Shoutout to Lurie College of Education Student Success Center Director Janene Perez, who was recently featured on the California State University’s Diversity Toolkit blog for highlighting some of the ways in which Lurie College has enhanced its efforts to recruit a diverse range of teaching candidates. Listen to and read what she had to say below!
Teacher educators, consider your own journey into education. Did you come from a family of educators? Or maybe you had a teacher who left an indelible mark that influenced your decision? These are inspired reasons to enter the field, but how do we reach those who never considered teaching, who may be the first in their family to attend college, or who didn’t have a teacher they connected with? Recruiting candidates with a diversity of experiences is absolutely vital to our mission of enhancing the quality of education for all students, but this work takes time, intention, and continuous reflection.

San Jose, Calif. — About 100 Silicon Valley thought leaders, policymakers and K-12 educators filled SJSU’s Diaz Compean Student Union Theater November 13 at the inaugural Future of Learning Summit, hosted by the Connie L. Lurie College of Education. The event included five keynote speakers and talks by five SJSU community members, all of whom addressed the question, “What is the future of learning?”
“We’re at a time of significant change in education and across society,” said Heather Lattimer, dean of the Lurie College. “We have changing job markets, demographic shifts and new understandings around what learning and cognition mean and look like. It’s a time of rapid change that can be really scary. But it’s also an opportunity for all of us to challenge the way that we think of education and schooling to find new ways to support stronger, more equitable and more relevant outcomes.” Lattimer described SJSU’s upcoming Future of Learning Initiative, a cross-disciplinary program to spur innovation on campus, serve as a hub for transforming education in the region, generate new knowledge that will elevate the importance of the scholarship of teaching and learning, and position SJSU as a thought leader in the field of educational innovation.

Congratulations to Department of Teacher Education faculty David Whitenack, Department of Special Education faculty Andrea Golloher, and Department of Educational Leadership faculty Rebeca Burciaga, whose research article “Intersectional Reculturing for All Students: Preparation and Practices for Educational Leaders” was recently published in the CAPEA Journal. Check out the abstract below and read the full article at http://bit.ly/2OZ805r!
Situated in the context of U.S. educational outcomes, education policy in California, and UNESCO’s definition of inclusive education, we examine how schools have addressed student diversity. Methods of identifying students with disabilities are not adequately designed to identify English learners with disabilities. In part to address that problem, we introduce the concept of intersectional reculturing as an approach for educators to consider students’ intersectional identities in order to address inequitable educational outcomes. We then present a theoretically grounded proposal for intersectionally recultured preparation of educational leaders, including use of a framework aligned with universal design for learning (UDL).
Lurie College students: Join folks from the SJSU Scholarship Office and Lurie College Scholarship Review Committee on Wed., Oct. 23, at 3:30pm in the Student Success Center – Sweeney Hall 106 – to learn more about the 2020-2021 Lurie College scholarship application process, which will begin during the Spring 2020 semester!
