2018 D2L Innovation Award in Teaching and Learning
The Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (STLHE) and D2L recently announced that Barbara Sinclair from Western University has been named as a winner of the 2018 D2L Innovation Award in Teaching and Learning.
The Teaching Support Centre would like to congratulate Barbara Sinclair and the four other award winners on their accomplishments and contributions towards teaching and learning in post-secondary education.
"Barbara Sinclair is a passionate educational leader. Her dedication to incorporating simulation in nursing education, while still a relatively new approach, resulted in technology-enhanced simulation being integral to all four years of Western’s nursing curriculum, thus providing students the opportunity to apply theory to practice and master essential nursing skills in a safe environment. Her electronic health (eHealth) record simulation system, for instance, engages students in complex case scenarios with a focus on patient safety and medication errors. Similarly, a collaboration with a fourth year student to develop an electronic medication administration record (eMAR) incorporating barcode technology, now aids nursing students in learning how to administer medications using technology they will encounter in Canadian healthcare facilities."
