Competency-based education (CBE) is a learning methodology in which students master skill and/or competencies before moving on to other learning items. Implementing CBE fundamentally changes the way courses are designed, the way outcomes are assessed, the way faculty and staff interact with students, and the way tuition is structured.
Participants will engage in reflective discussions, participate in peer-reviewed activities, complete simple knowledge checks, watch videos, explore curated resources and collaborate with others. All participants who successfully complete this course will earn a digital badge.
