The initial phases of Linked Learning pathway design involve district staff, the campus principal, other key stakeholders, and the Pathway Design Team (PDT). The District provides coaching, training, and technical assistance to support each campus in designing their pathways.
See Design Phase 1 and Design Phase 2.
Designing a pathway is complex business, with many things to consider as you work collaboratively to create something workable for your campus. First consider required Structural Elements. Keep in mind Instructional Elements and Cultural Elements as well, as these will make the difference during the implementation phase.
After Design Phase 2 in the spring of the planning year, the PDT hands off implementation and accountability to the Pathway Team (PT). It is critical that the PDT orient the Pathway Team to the work and learning accomplished during the design phases, so the team has the context within which to begin their work.
