The BCDA’s collections feature multimedia records of teaching and learning practices collected from K-12 schools, university courses, laboratory classes, and other educational contexts. The videos, audios, images, and other documents that comprise the collections are minimally edited—capturing and portraying practice as it played out in real time. These collections can be used in a variety of ways for education and research.

We are in the process of developing our first collections, which will be made available in October 2013.
