Education Chapter 4th Annual Education in Action

Our latest Event:

 Education Alumni Chapter - Education in Action Panel

On Saturday, March 2, 2024, the CSUN Library's Ferman Presentation Room hosted an enlightening panel discussion on reading and literacy organized by the Education Alumni Chapter. The "Education in Action" event brought together esteemed professionals in person and embraced a hybrid format, allowing participants to join remotely via Zoom. This hybrid approach facilitated broader participation, enabling individuals from different locations to engage in insightful discussions. The moderator Aline Millan, Co-President of the CSUN Education alumni chapter, guided the discussion. CSUN librarian Lisa Cheby and I, as the 2nd VP of CSUN Education Alumni Chapter were co-hosted the Zoom program by ensuring the smooth operation of the hybrid event, monitoring the Zoom session, fielding questions from Zoom attendees, and posting the event on social media outlets.


The panel featured distinguished experts in the field of education, each offering their unique perspectives on promoting literacy. Dr. Lindsay Young, an Instructional Coach at the Accelerated Literacy Academies (ALA) within the Los Angeles Unified School District; Dr. Dominic Grasso, an Assistant Professor at California State University, Northridge, and Sherry Layne, a Children's Entertainer & Arts Educator from Story Pirates, shared their wealth of knowledge and experiences with the audience.

One notable highlight of the event was the participation of the Dean of the CSUN Education Department, who attended remotely from out of state via Zoom. This further emphasized the inclusive nature of the panel, demonstrating how technology can bridge geographical barriers and foster collaboration.

Throughout the session, in-person and online attendees could interact with the panelists, ask questions, and share insights. The dynamic exchange of ideas created a collaborative atmosphere where educators, alums, and students came together to explore innovative approaches to literacy education.

As the event concluded, participants left with a renewed sense of inspiration and many new ideas to implement in their educational practices. The Education in Action panel exemplified the power of collaboration and lifelong learning within the education community.

Attendees thank the Education Alumni Chapter for organizing such a thought-provoking event and all the panelists for their invaluable contributions. Together, we continue to strive towards creating a more literate and empowered society, embracing innovation and inclusivity every step of the way. 

We asked the attendees to stay connected with the CSUN Eisner College of Education Alumni Chapter for more exciting events and initiatives in the future.
