Lurie College Students Shine at Learning Showcase

SJSU Lurie College of Education Learning Showcase

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:

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.

“Looking back at my academic journey I am grateful for all of the obstacles that I have faced as a first-generation college student. Taking the less traveled route in my family led me to education which is a powerful tool that has transformed the way I see the world. I want to support, encourage, and guide ALL students towards achieving their academic goals and finding a career that they are passionate about. If I can help one person change their life with education, I have reached my goal as an educator.”

“Feeling nervous about being in school for the first time after so many years away, let alone as a graduate student, I couldn’t have asked for a more meaningful experience. From my first day at the Lurie College of Education, I finally felt like I had found my calling. Surrounded by inspiring professors and like-minded colleagues, I found a place where I belonged. I’ve also formed life-long bonds with some of the most amazing people. For that alone, I am forever grateful to this school.”
