CSU New Generation of Educators

Our Community Members

The New Generation of Educators Community is for CSU faculty as well as K-12 and community college educators participating in reforms that prepare future and current elementary and secondary teachers for instruction using the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). The Community is part of a CSU systemwide partnership with the S. D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation and is designed to prepare world-class teachers in the state of California.

Promoting the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

The New Generation of Educators Community is based upon the concept of a “teaching commons” whereby the community of educational professionals advance preparation of educators in all capacities through sharing of ideas, practices, information, and resources. 

Another CSU-MERLOT Partnership

CSU faculty engaged in preparation and professional development for elementary and secondary teachers can share high quality resources and make them available through this web site and through the Multimedia Educational Resource for Learning and Online Teaching (MERLOT). MERLOT provides CSU faculty and partners an opportunity to "publish" online, to develop comprehensive personal collections of valuable resources, and to make contributions to this growing digital library.
