About the BLC

Sponsored by Pearson, the BLC is an annual learning and sharing event devoted to innovation and excellence in teaching general biology to college science majors. The 2024 BLC will be held over the weekend of April 12-14, 2024.

  • best practices are modeled

  • learning is the focus

  • collaborative projects are initiated and fostered

At the BLC you will:
