"Connecting subject areas with the Linked Learning interdisciplinary approach made my learning easier and more relevant."
"The project based model gave me a real understanding of the subject material and allowed me to create a rich learning environment for my students. This model makes learning come to life!"
"The group based projects facilitated my own interpersonal skills and allowed me to continually learn from my partners in a way that working on my own would not have."
Preparing Teachers for Linked Learning Programs
SDSU's Linked Learning Cohort introduces candidates to the Linked Learning approach
by linking the academic core subjects to the career and technical education experience
at the secondary level.
A total of 9 teacher preparation institutions form a network of programs preparing Single Subject teachers for Linked Learning schools and programs.
Our program is partnering with several career pathway programs in San Diego secondary schools to prepare new teachers with a clinical experience that includes career preparation in the credential program.
