If you find yourself delivering an online herbal program (surprise!) because of the pandemic, don't despair. Online adult education is a progressive field full of creative strategies and unique delivery options designed to bring your subject and classroom alive and make it meaningful. In this webinar, we will discuss some of the key elements as examined through andragogy (the study of adult education) as well as lots of practical tips you can implement immediately in your classroom. We will draw on a decade of online teaching experience to see the possibilities of online education with the goal to help herbal educators see opportunity and possibilities.

Why Suggested Sliding Scale
AHG acknowledges the uncertainty of these times and welcomes herbalists at all levels to our special educational webinar series. By offering suggested sliding scale for these timely webinars, we invite all interested to attend these webinars at the level of financial contribution that is comfortable for them, while also acknowledging the expertise of the webinar presenters and the amount of behind-the-scenes planning which goes into planning and hosting these.
As a non-profit, it is part of our mission to support access to herbal medicine for all and advocate for excellence in herbal education. One way we support the growing herbal community during COVID-19 is by offering a number of relevant, clinically-based webinars with access for all. While we are requesting a nominal suggested donation to go towards our webinar hosting costs, no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if the suggested sliding scale donation is inaccessible for you during these challenging times.
