BL Connect is an unlimited library of research-based on-demand courses designed to provide every educator with the tools and resources they need to create a student-centered classroom.
As the foundation for connected professional learning, BL Connect drives awareness into a given topic. When combined with deep dive Workshops and job-embedded learning experiences such as 1:1 Coaching and Learning Walks, educators work to achieve outcomes through intentional learning paced throughout the year to move from awareness to ownership of their skills.
Educators get unlimited access to an evolving library of bite-sized courses focused on student-centered teaching and learning.
Cultivate and reference tools and strategies that can be implemented in the classroom immediately by working towards the outcome tied directly to each course.
Each self-directed course is packed with practical strategies from our master teachers, videos of real classrooms, downloadable resources, and opportunities to discuss ideas and outcomes with other educators.
BL Connect seamlessly integrates with the BL Lab so it’s easy to access and revisit courses. School leaders and instructional coaches can also access a comprehensive dashboard to see the outcomes their teachers are working towards and their professional learning progress.
We believe in the power of coaching. Each self-directed course is guided by one of our master coaches through video and audio that discusses the targeted outcome of the course and provides guidance and practical advice to support learning.
All of the BL Connect courses are based around the four elements that BetterLesson has identified as key for building student-centered classrooms.
