For Educators

Transforming Learning and Teaching

Being a LL educator is a unique, fun, engaging experience, and teachers can benefit from participating in ways similar to how students benefit (connections across aspects of your role/relevancy, creativity and increased freedom in curriculum design, part of team to support each other and students, opportunities for work-based learning and industry experience to inform curriculum, team planning retreats, etc.)

Being a Linked Learning educator is a different way of teaching; with that comes an additional set of challenges. To support Oakland Linked Learning educators in implementing pathways programs, this site can be a first stop for resources, info, how to access help, and more.
