Keynote Speaker:

Gary Hoachlander

In more than 40 communities throughout California and a growing number of other states, Linked Learning is emerging as one of the most promising approaches for achieving effective school improvement. Linked Learning engages students by making education relevant and rigorous. It brings together strong academics, career-based classroom learning, real-world workplace experience, and personalized student supports. Linked Learning is organized and delivered through themed pathways such as digital media arts, engineering, green energy, health sciences, and law and justice.

Let’s look at what it takes to design and implement systems of high quality Linked Learning pathways and help ensure sustainability and continuous improvement. We’ll also examine findings from a seven-year, longitudinal evaluation of Linked Learning conducted by SRI International.

Gary Hoachlander is President of ConnectEd: The California Center for College and Career. Beginning his career in 1966 as a brakeman for the Western Maryland Railroad, he has devoted most of his professional life to helping young people learn by doing—connecting education to the opportunities, challenges, and many different rewards to be found through work. Widely known for his expertise in career and technical education and many other aspects of elementary, secondary, and postsecondary education, Gary has consulted extensively for the U.S. Department of Education, state departments of education, local school districts, foundations, and a variety of other clients. Gary earned his Bachelor’s degree at Princeton University and holds both a Master’s and Ph.D. degree from the Department of City and Regional Planning, University of California, Berkeley.
