Bryn Mawr College has been a pioneer in exploring the use of blended learning in the liberal arts since 2011, when Provost (now President) Kim Cassidy received the first of several major, multi-institutional foundation grants to explore combining online and in-class learning approaches to enhance student learning. Participants shared their experiences and findings at the annual Blended Learning in the Liberal Arts conference held at the college from 2012-2020, now archived in Bryn Mawr’s Digital Commons repository (see link below). In addition, Bryn Mawr has held a number of conferences on online learning and supported its faculty through several grant-funded projects on blended learning.
