In a hybrid or virtual learning environment, educators deliver equitable, engaging, and student-centered instruction through online learning communities and resources.
This focus area supports educators in building an effective hybrid or virtual learning experience that allows students to find ways to collaborate, build relationships, and take ownership of their learning.
Effective hybrid and virtual learning requires educators to begin planning with the solution in mind: a learning experience that is engaging, meaningful, and effective for students. We support skill development through personalized pathways built from BL Connect, Workshops, 1:1 Coaching, and Learning Walks to achieve clear outcomes.
