Blended professional learning has been an emerging trend as education professionals seek to create new and more effective pathways to growth and investment in human capital. LDC’s approach to blended professional learning is centered on problems of practice such as teacher classroom practices, classroom formative assessment, or curricular rigor. These are addressed using a hybrid model of support including both in-person and online resources, through job-embedded work that generates data to track teacher skill development and bring immediate impact to classroom instruction. See how it all works together.
