Connect with Lurie College and SJSU

Connect with the SJSU Lurie College of Education @sjsulurie

Stay connected to helpful online resources as we head into the Fall 2021 semester!  Here are some initial Lurie College of Education and SJSU resources:

SJSU x REP4 Learner Design Summit

The newly-established Rapid Education Prototyping (REP4) Alliance is a powerful network of regional and national education, industry, and technology leaders, led by the six founding higher education partners, including the SJSU Lurie College of Education / Institute for Emancipatory Education. This alliance will create opportunities to bring together diverse learners to codesign new ideas for education using liberatory design principles.

In Summer 2021, we will launch this network with a free Learner Design Summit, which is a leadership development opportunity designed to bring together rising 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students, recent high school graduates, community college students, and SJSU undergraduate students to collaborate and design creative proposals to address existing challenges in the higher education system.

Learn more and apply to participate in the summit – which will take place Monday, July 19 – Thursday, July 22, 9am-1pm – at sjsu.edu/education/community/iee/rep4.

K-12 Teaching Academy | Considering Community and Trauma

Presenter

  • Lara Ervin-Kassab, EdD | Assistant Professor | SJSU Lurie College of Education | Twitter: @drlarakassab

Description

As we return to both face to face and blended classrooms, we need to explore how we are (re)building learning communities, relationships, and safety in our classrooms. This presentation will be an interactive exploration of digital and analog approaches and tools for building relationships with and between students. We will explore the need to critically analyze our own practices and schooling norms so that school becomes a place of healing, rather than perpetuating and compounding the traumas all of us have experienced over the past year and a half.

K-12 Teaching Academy | Better Together: Partnering with Families and the Community for Student Success

Presenter

  • Chassidy Olainu-Alade | Coordinator of Community and Civic Engagement | Fort Bend Independent School District | Twitter: @ChasAlade

Description

Parent engagement has always been a top ranking tenant of successful K-12 education systems. Effective parent engagement practices benefit students as school-to-home connections promote positive reinforcement of knowledge and skills, allow for extension of learning, and develop mutual support around discipline and expectations. Additionally, the broader community provides schools and teachers with the resources, expertise, and volunteerism to achieve their goals. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, common methods of parent and community engagement included a variety of face-to-face events, in-person opportunities, and one-way communications. Since the pandemic, the ways in which teachers engage parents, families, and the community has shifted to practices that are more inclusive, flexible, and creative in nature. This session will allow participants to walk away with a deep understanding of the role that parent, family, and community engagement plays on the classroom environment and school culture. Participants will understand methods of engaging parents in a post-pandemic school setting and be provided with some best practices for developing two-way communications and collaborations with parents, all the while navigating new modes of 21st century learning, anti-racist curriculum implementation, and meeting the needs of diverse learners.

K-12 Teaching Academy | Centering Humanity Through Identity-Informed Collaborative Notebook Activities

Presenter

  • Betina Hsieh, PhD | Associate Professor of Teacher Education | California State University Long Beach | Twitter: @ProfHsieh

Description

How can we stay connected with our own humanity and that of our students after a year of distance learning? In this interactive presentation, educators will gain a sense of how humanizing pedagogies can be at the core of disciplinary learning and how we can invite students to share their identities, cultures, and experiences using digital tools and multiple modalities to support inclusive, community-grounded instruction in classrooms.

K-12 Teaching Academy | Reimagining K-16 (Science) Teaching and Learning During a Time of Crisis

Presenter

  • Tammie Visintainer, PhD | Assistant Professor Science/Teacher Education | SJSU Lurie College of Education | Twitter: @tavisint

Description

The intersecting COVID-19 and racial injustice crises have re-exposed the interwoven social, racial, political, and economic dimensions of educational opportunity and the injustices laid bare are many. This workshop will empower educators across disciplines from kindergarten to college as designers and leaders, who have the opportunity to transform inequitably designed education systems by radically reimagining and building learning environments from a foundation of human dignity and respect.

This workshop focuses on the design of equitable, inclusive, and justice-centered learning environments through the creation of design principles. Design principles serve as tenets for pedagogy and practice and as guidelines for the design of future learning experiences. To support this, I will draw from my experience as a science teacher educator and learning scientist exploring race, identity, and learning in science education; a professional pathway built from Black brilliance, generous mentorship, and the wisdom of scholars of color. As such, the workshop will engage in reimagining efforts that center the transformative and sustaining practices of Black, Indigenous, Latinx and other scholars of color who inspire the education community to approach teaching and learning from new ethical and pedagogical imaginations.

Workshop attendees will be introduced to design principles and guided through the construction process through an example from my secondary science methods course where teacher candidate’s construct Design Principles for Teaching (Science) for Equity and Inclusion. While science is the focal example, educators from any discipline are encouraged and welcome as this practice is widely applicable. Educators will leave the workshop with an expanded understanding of how to design learning environments that affirm and sustain the identities of minoritized students in/outside of science. This workshop offers hope and possibility for learning communities during the present crises and a reimagining of what they can become moving forward.

K-12 Teaching Academy | Talk as Transformation: Building Equity, Agency and Joy in the Elementary Classroom

Presenter

Description

Talk has the potential to transform classroom culture, literacy learning, and children’s identity – both individually and collectively. Building a culture of talk creates joyful, engaging space for students to think and construct together. This session will create a vision of classrooms alive with talk, and offer strategies for launching talk, and developing the kind of thoughtful, authentic facilitation that honors student’s intellect, teaches into meaning making as a process, honors unique understandings, and helps each student realize the power of their own voice.
