The Connecting Link Courses
Pacific Lutheran University and The Connecting Link are two years into a productive partnership designed to offer graduate-level curriculum for the professional learning needs of educators nationwide.
For nearly four decades TCL has developed and improved rigorous and effective coursework guided online and on-site by experienced active classroom instructors. TCL instructors make genuine connections with participants, offering individualized instructional, assessment and growth strategies based on one-on-one discussion and feedback as well as collaborative group learning.
Over 60 new or updated courses are available in self-paced or interactive online formats as well as scheduled site-based offerings, including:
- 21st-Century Teaching
- Content-Area Teaching
- Equity & Diversity
- Instructional Strategies
- Positive Classroom Management
- Social & Emotional Learning
- Technology Tools for the Classroom
Participants completing courses for credit will receive a PLU transcript. Courses approved by PLU may be eligible toward advanced degree program options. TCL courses may also be taken as a noncredit option to earn clock hours only. Certificates of completion documenting course hours will be provided.
Whether in the classroom or online, TCL’s high-quality learning opportunities help school professionals work with a community of peers to forge durable links between the latest research and daily practice.
