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.
SJSU Lurie College of Education students, alumni, faculty, staff, partners, friends, and family are invited to attend the inaugural Learning Showcase, which will highlight Lurie College undergraduate, graduate, credential, and doctoral students’ academic accomplishments from the Fall 2019 semester! This event will take place on Friday, December 6, from 4-8pm in Sweeney Hall and include posters, presentations, panels, a plenary, and prizes.
