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 fields.

CSU / CSU Long Beach CALL

The CSU/CSU Long Beach Collaborative for the Advancement of Linked Learning (CSU CALL) prepare teachers, counselors, and administrators for distributed leadership roles in Linked Learning. It assists educator preparation programs in integrating Linked Learning principles and practices throughout the development of knowledge, skills, and dispositions of future educators. It advances preparation of school leaders through designing and fostering Master’s Degree Programs in Curriculum and Instruction, School Counseling, and Educational Leadership with a specialization in Linked Learning—preparing leaders for Linked Learning across school roles. It advances designs preparing teachers for Linked Learning leadership roles through the earning of dual credentials—one in a subject area and one in Career Technical Education (CTE). It contributes to the knowledge base in Linked Learning through research partnerships with school districts that focus on questions aimed at strengthening Linked Learning practices and outcomes for pathway students. Doctoral candidates in Educational Leadership—among the state’s most equity-focused future leaders—are primary researchers.

Promoting the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

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.

Another CSU-MERLOT Partnership

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) . 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.
