    Etienne Wenger-Trayner is a globally recognized thought leader in the field of communities of practice, who was featured by Training Magazine in their “A new Breed of Visionaries” series. A pioneer of the “communities of practice” research, he is author and co-author of seminal articles and books on the topic, including Situated Learning, where the term was coined, Communities of Practice: Learning, Meaning, and Identity, where he lays out a theory of learning based on the concept of communities of practice, Cultivating Communities of Practice: a Guide to Managing Knowledge, addressed to practitioners in organizations, and Digital Habitats dealing with issues related to technology. His work as researcher, author, and consultant has influenced both thinking and practice in a wide variety of fields, including business, education, government, and social theory.

    Open presentation and discussion for faculty and students to present the foundations of social learning theory and discuss different dimensions of the theory including how they contribute to the overall theory and how they are being used for research and for practice. We will explore the implications of each dimension of the theory for the design of educational experiences and the role of educators and educational institutions.

    Overcoming Adversity: Engaging the Power of the Human Spirit

    Location:
    Gothic Lounge, Hepburn Hall
    United States
    Time:6:00 PM9:00 PM

    Join the Criminal Justice Department and the NJCU Honors Program for The Jason Schechterle Story, on April 18th from 6:00 – 9:00 pmin the Gothic Lounge, Hepburn Hall. 

    Growing up, Jason had one dream - to serve as a Phoenix Police Officer. Inspired by his brother and the tragic loss of a local law enforcement hero, Jason worked persistently toward his goal. Only 14 months after achieving that goal, Jason's life took a tragic turn.

    On the night of March 26th, 2001, a taxi cab crashed into the rear of Jason's patrol car. Upon impact, Jason's car burst into flames, trapping him inside with temperatures reaching over 700 degrees. Through a series of miraculous and fateful circumstances, Jason survived the crash and ensuing physical and emotional catastrophe. He suffered severe burns to over 40% of his body, which drastically altered his appearance.

    Jason's journey chronicles his fight for life, his triumph over tragedy, and the inspiration that enables him to continue to overcome unimaginable adversity. His personal narrative exemplifies that the power of the human spirit can never be underestimated or extinguished. His story is one of life, rebirth, and transformation.
