National Initiatives in Competency-Based Education: Progress and Lessons Learned
Join representatives from institutions immersed in the process of developing and delivering competency-based education as they discuss the opportunities and challenges of comprehensive program implementation. Institutions leading these CBE efforts are collaborating to create resources that can be of value to institutions considering or developing their own new and redesigned CBE programs. These schools will share the results of the first cycle of collaborative work in three areas: communication, program design, and business processes. The panel will include leaders from institutions that have participated in national CBE initiatives such as CBEN, the Breakthrough Models Incubator, CAEL's Jump Start program, and WGU's CBE collaboration with community colleges.
OUTCOMES: Learn about the array of programs offered in support of CBE * Learn about national initiatives in CBE and which are best aligned with different institutional goals and student needs * Apply learning about opportunities and challenges related to CBE in different stages of development
