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.
