Minnesota Learning Commons
The Minnesota Learning Commons (MnLC) is a partnership between Minnesota's public education systems to support educators teaching in online, blended, and digital learning environments.
Mission & Goals
The Minnesota Learning Commons (MnLC) mission to “support educators teaching in online, blended, and digital learning environments.” The Learning Commons executes its mission through its Coordinating Committee, webinar series, and Special Interest Groups.
For the 2021-22 academic year, the MnLC partners are studying the 60-Year Curriculum, a series of ideas on adult lifelong learning, and possibilities of implementing it in Minnesota's education systems. For the 2022-23 academic year, goals are being developed around the creation of pilot projects for micro-credentials, concurrent enrollment, and other topics related to equitable life long learning.
The MnLC is managed by a coordinating committee made up of representatives from Minnesota's public education systems.
