Faces of Learning

During the Fall 2019 and Spring 2020 semesters, a group of SJSU undergraduate student researchers met with students across campus to get a deeper understanding of their learning experiences and then utilized photography and narrative to shine a light on those students' learning experiences.

Faces of Learning Episode 1

Meet some of the project's Co-researchers - Leeza Xiong, Edith Urbano, and Isabel Rangel Hernandez - as they begin to delve into the art of interviewing to gather learning stories from peers and utilizing photography to communicate those stories.  Project Coordinator Briettny Curtner tells us where she sees the project heading and how she hopes it will change the student narrative on campus.
