Bevin Clare, associate professor and clinical herbalism program manager, received an “Effective Practices” award at the 11th Annual Online Learning Consortium (formerly the Sloan Consortium) Blended Learning Conference and Workshop for her submission, “Student-Driven Case-Based Learning.”

Speaking about the award, Clare said, “MUIH has always had wonderful teachers. In our conversion to an online program, the herbal programs have worked hard to implement new and progressive teaching methods. This award demonstrates the innovation we have always had in our classrooms and recognizes the success of converting it to an online environment.”

Judith Broida, provost and executive vice president of academic affairs, said that “as a university that has just recently adopted online learning, we are so pleased that the quality of our course development has been recognized nationally by the Online Learning Consortium, a leading organization in the field of online learning. Bevin Clare’s creative approach to teaching online demonstrates that this teaching approach can be equally as engaging and innovative as classroom based learning. Bevin can now add an online teaching award to her many classroom based ones she has received at MUIH. We are so pleased to have someone like Bevin as a member of our faculty who not only is an expert in her field but also in pedagogy.”
