RADNOR Pa. (June 16, 2011) — Dr. Beverly Bryde, chair and associate professor of education at Cabrini College, received the 2011 Lindback Award for Excellence in Teaching.
The award was presented to Dr. Bryde during the College’s 51st Commencement exercises in May.
Dr. Bryde was a Cabrini faculty member from 1990 to 1995, and returned in 2006; she attributed her return to Cabrini to her belief in the College’s dedication to service. As a leader in the Education Department, Bryde has presented and published on a variety of topics, including using technology to supervise student teachers; how to implement web-based portfolios; and how to use video-phones and the Internet to tutor.
In June 2010, Dr. Bryde traveled to the Cabrini Ministries St. Philip’s Mission in Swaziland as part of a six-person Cabrini College delegation. The team helped forge a partnership between the College and the Mission, which provides a hostel, health care, education, food, and skills-training. Over the next three years, the College’s Education Department will further develop the partnership with the Cabrini Ministries education staff in the areas of reading, English language learning strategies, mathematics and the use of technology to enhance learning.
Dr. Bryde earned a bachelor’s and a master’s degree at Villanova University, and a doctorate in education at Widener University. The Lindback Award for Excellence in Teaching, funded by the Christian R. and Mary F. Lindback Foundation of Philadelphia, provides grants to institutions of higher education for the promotion of teaching excellence, and recognizes academic excellence and outstanding teaching. At Cabrini, it is presented every other year.
