    George Mason University ( David Miller and Larisa Olesova) implemented an online course initiative, COMM 380, that followed the key principles of two learner-centered approaches: flexible learning and experiential learning. The significance of this initiative is that this asynchronous online course was able to modify both approaches as the method of online instruction.


    George Mason University won the 2018 Catalyst Award for Teaching & Learning. This award recognizes those who have adopted flexible, distance and online delivery, including mobile technologies to positively impact the educational experience.
