The CSU Linked Learning Community, in partnership with California Community Colleges (CCCs) and various local school districts, is an online meeting place for CSU faculty and educators across California to strengthen educational pathways and implement new ways to give students practical work-based skills.
The goals of the project are: (1) To build and expand upon existing implementations of linked learning. (2) To connect school districts, CCC's, and university programs of study. (3) Lead students to bachelor's degree in high-demanding feilds.
The CSU Linked Learning Community is based upon the concept of a “teaching commons” whereby the community of CSU faculty advance preparation of current as well as future educators through sharing of ideas, practices, information, and resources.
CSU faculty engaged in preparation and professional development of current and future educators can share high quality resources and make them available through this web site and through the Multimedia Educational Resource for Learning and Online Teaching (MERLOT) at www.merlot.org. MERLOT provides CSU faculty and partners an opportunity to "publish" online, to develop comprehensive personal collections of valuable resources, and to make contributions to this growing digital library.
