    Competency-Based Education Workshop

    Competency-Based Education – Thursday, April 30th from 8:30 – 4:30 p.m.: Due to popular demand, we are also offering CBE as part of our spring workshop series. As colleges and universities consider how to adopt or develop new CBE programs, there is a need to ensure that everyone understands what these programs are and how they can be established while maintaining attention to academic rigor and faculty involvement. This workshop will provide an overview of CBE and competency-based assessment, including a look at long-standing models and some of the new ones that have been developed. Participants will be able to begin assessing their institutional readiness for CBE as it relates to business modeling, market demand and outreach, faculty and staff preparedness and academic program design and development. Full day workshops will include breaks and lunch.
