Go beyond PD day with comprehensive professional learning programs that work. Connected professional learning supports every educator, every day with the tools and resources they need to help all students succeed.
We know that students don’t all learn the same way or on the same day, so why do we expect educators to? Support both teachers and leaders with a professional learning program that’s built from differentiated learning experiences throughout the school year to create meaningful changes for students in every classroom.
Creating district-wide change requires buy-in from all stakeholders, differentiated support for educators, and a clear plan to continuously build upon pedagogical knowledge and practice.
Layering distinct phases into your professional learning plan provides educators with continued support throughout the school year. Educators will engage in in-person, virtual, group, and individual learning experiences that are all designed to help them make the jump from theory to ongoing changes in practice.
Professional learning experiences should end with clear next steps for educators to take. Every BetterLesson learning experience is tied to a measurable outcome that gives educators actionable goals and a clear way to measure progress. Educators will work towards their chosen outcomes throughout the school year as they continually try new strategies, measure the results for students, and use that data to build the next stage of their plan.

We’ll work with you to craft a personalized professional learning plan that’s built from the focus areas that align with your district’s goals and are key for creating student-centered classrooms.

Empower educators to achieve meaningful student outcomes in concrete, practical ways by offering job-embedded learning experiences that are paced throughout the school year and can be applied in the classroom the next day. Combining in-person, virtual, collaborative, and self-directed learning opportunities, we seamlessly personalize our learning session to meet the needs of each teacher, instructional specialist, and district leader. This immersive approach to professional development leads to sustainable change in practice that accelerates outcomes, turning district goals into student growth.
The BL Lab is at the center of your professional learning program. When all your high-quality learning resources are centralized in one easy to access platform for educators, leaders, and administrators, you close the implementation gap and ensure that district-level innovation truly translates to changes in teacher practice and results for learners.
Educators access learning, engage with their coach, track progress toward their outcomes, and measure their confidence to enact those outcomes in the classroom. Administrators have a complete view of their professional learning programs and dashboards to examine learning progress across individual groups of educators.
In the 2019–2020 school year, the Watervliet City School District identified special education as an area of focus. Special education teachers had shared that general education professional development wasn’t meeting their specific needs and did not feel actionable. The district partnered with BetterLesson to develop and implement personalized professional development for all special education teachers through a full year of 1:1, job-embedded, virtual Coaching with BetterLesson’s expert educators.
