Competency-Based Learning Meets OER: Washington Community Colleges' Newest Path to Degree

Tuesday, February 10 | 3:15PM–4:00PM | Pacific B, Second Floor
Session Type: Professional Development
Most competency-based education programs keep something under wraps: assessments, content, even the competencies themselves. But the Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges (SBCTC) is taking a different approach with its recently launched, self-paced CBE online transfer degree in business. Combining outcomes-focused design and high-quality open educational resources delivered through an adaptive platform, SBCTC is shining daylight on its approach, betting greater transparency will strengthen the educational experience and learning outcomes. Don't miss this opportunity to see the whole picture of CBE, from program genesis to course design to delivery to gaining system-level support.

OUTCOMES: Learn about the inner processes and components of a self-paced, online competency-based degree program * Learn what can be gained from total transparency in design and delivery * Understand factors that optimize CBE course design, content, and delivery
