Limited Capacity seats available

Open Session Limited to 80 Participants (First-Come, First-In)

It’s no secret that institutions are taking a look at alternatives to the traditional education model in attempt to better meet the needs of today’s students. Competency-based education (CBE) is one such alternative that is getting a lot of attention. In CBE, students are evaluated and awarded credit based on their ability to demonstrate specific skills and competencies, offering many a faster path to degree completion. However, a question that we hear from educators time and time again is, “where do we start?” In this session, we will explore why more and more colleges are launching competency-based programs, the strategies they are adopting, the challenges they face, and the role technology can play in the process.
