Competency Based Education

A ‘Disruptive’ Look at Competency-Based Education” from the Center for American Progress

Competency Based education IS the future.  Those who haven’t figured this out have their heads stuck in sand.  The question is What does it actually mean and what will it take to move your institution that direction.  The article at the link above is touches on these points and provides a good discussion starter with your academic departments.  Institutions which neglect these conversations are going to be sad sooner than later.

It would be interesting if we were to engage in that conversation here within the ACCESS Blog.

  1. Thanks Mary for making the cased for considering CBE in Christian education.

    I am just back from the ATS meeting in Pittsburgh on Educational Models and CBE attracted a lot of conversations and planning.

    It seems to be the next paradigm change with the progress of distance learning apparent now.

    Looking forward to more “regular and substantive interaction” on this new design.
