How to use the BDLA

The BDLA has specifically curated material intended to help college faculty and students teach and learn about BD from a technical and societal perspective. These materials are posted on the Teaching Materials page, which contains case studies, slide decks, reading materials and sample exams. This material is available completely free of charge — all we request is your contact information so that we can keep in touch. We ask users to provide feedback on the material so that it can be improved and expanded.
