Voyager Sopris Learning (VSL) has been delivering the successful and impactful Language Essentials for Teachers of Reading and Spelling (LETRS) literacy professional development to teachers for 20 years. This spring, VSL embarked on a project to revise the LETRS content, delivery platform and implementation models in order to offer a more scalable blended solution.This new learning platform will also be leveraged across other Voyager Sopris Learning products.

Open Classroom Consulting is currently working with the VSL Product Development team and the LETRS advisory group to develop an experience design for the new online training, including a community and engagement strategy. We also facilitated a series of face-to-face meetings with the authors of the LETRS curriculum to generate mock-ups and a content roadmap for each of the 64 online course sessions. These community and engagement strategies will be the foundation of future VSL professional development products.
