Welcome to UpLearn! My name is Bradley Lands and I am an educational consultant ready to help support your unique professional learning needs and goals. I set high expectations, and deliver upstanding educational services to enhance teaching and learning.
As a passionate educator with 15 years of experience in the classroom, I have been providing consulting services to schools for 10 years now. I am currently the Director of Technology and Innovation at a Prekindergarten though Grade 8 Independent School in Northern Virginia, but I intentionally carve out time to work with other teachers and school leaders to broaden my impact in the field of education.
What separates me from other consulting companies is twofold. First, I offer what I like to call “upservice” which is an elevated professional learning experience that exceeds normal expectations. And two, because I operate alone, my consulting fees are significantly lower than the competition. Simply put, I am able to provide better service, for a better price.
Custom Professional Development
Every school community has its own unique strengths and challenges. I partner with school leaders to develop custom professional learning experiences that target educational needs.
Over the course of my career in education, I have taught in both public and independent schools, as well as in higher education as an adjunct professor for a graduate level course. I have been an administrator at my current school for nine years and I continue to find new ways to build capacity in my colleagues. My mission as a leader is to positively influence different stakeholders to help students construct the knowledge and skills they will need to become lifelong learners, and creative problem solvers in our global society.
Keynote Presentations and Workshops
It has never been more important than it is today to reground in education. We are losing talented and passionate teachers to the profession every year, and we simply can’t afford to lose any more. I deliver inspirational and informative messages that uplift the spirit of teaching, and unleash the power of learning.
As an innovator in education, I have sought out highly competitive professional development experiences for myself. This allows me to connect with other innovative educators in my field, and it helps me to stay positive and energized throughout the school year. Because of this, I am a Google for Education Certified Innovator, a Google for Education Certified Trainer, an Apple Distinguished Educator, a Siemens STEM Institute Fellow, an ATLIS Leadership Institute Fellow, and a National Board Certified Teacher in Technology Education.
Consulting and Coaching Opportunities
Every school can benefit from additional support from an outside source. I offer intentional advising and training that is dedicated to achieving desired results in the classroom.
My background is in middle education with a focus in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) instruction and content knowledge. This allows me to adapt my services to many different grade levels and subject areas.
Expertise in Education
While I offer many different professional development services, I specialize in inquiry-based learning instruction, innovative technology practices, and highly effective leadership strategies.
I train educators on how to use powerful technology tools to enhance teaching and learning in the classroom. I lead workshops for educators on how to leverage inquiry in the classroom to enhance teaching and learning. And I partner with administrators to help them become change agents in order to make progress on the goals and initiatives of their strategic plan.
Free Content from my Book
I am currently in the process of writing and publishing my own book titled, Knowledge-ABLE: Igniting a New Generation of Lifelong Learners. My aim with this book is to offer a unique set of ideas that teachers and administrators can hopefully use to help students become better learners in this rapidly-changing world that we live in today. You can learn more about my book, and get some free content by visiting my Book website.
