The Anti-Boring Learning Lab is a community of educators who obsess over sharing the science-backed study skills and executive function strategies every student needs to thrive. 

It’s a one-stop shop where you’ll learn the tools and the brain science students need to shift from unmotivated, bored, and struggling students into independent, motivated, self-starting learners.

Most importantly, you’ll join a community of passionate educators to ask questions, share ideas, and rethink learning and schools together.  As one newly minted Anti-Boring academic coach gushed, “I came for the curriculum but stayed for the community.” 

Not only will you receive your choice of micro-credentials that represent “the least you need to know” about study skills, note-taking, executive functions, how to be an academic coach and more, but you’ll also have access to community calls, book clubs, co-working sessions, and special interest chats. 

Whether you are (or want to become) an academic coach, executive function coach, ADHD coach, or life coach; whether you are a classroom teacher, special ed teacher, school counselor, or are in other quirky corners of education -- there is something for you and your students at the Anti-Boring Learning Lab. 

What we all have in common is a hunger to help our students succeed and a longing to connect with other educators as passionate as we are.
