Monday, January 26 | 2:00PM–3:00PM
Session Type: Professional Development

Join Malcolm Brown, EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative director, and Veronica Diaz, ELI associate director, as they moderate this webinar with Daniel Hickey.

This webinar will show how participatory social engagement around course knowledge can be fostered within competency-based online learning contexts. Five educational design principles will be presented for organizing, motivating, and assessing online learning. Together, these principles support the interactive learning needed to prepare learners for success in networked knowledge settings, while providing the flexibility, self-pacing, and accountability associated with traditional competency-based approaches. These principles will be presented alongside features used to implement them in popular learning management systems.
