Description

Online learning can help support a competency-based education (CBE) approach, which enables students to advance through their education at their own pace based on their ability to master a skill or competency. Research suggests a CBE approach can result in deeper student learning and engagement.

Attend this web seminar to learn strategies and best practices for using online learning to support a CBE approach at any college or university. Two leaders from Texas A&M University-Commerce will outline how they are using this model to meet the goals of the state’s “60x30TX” initiative, and some best practices for any institution exploring a CBE approach.

Topics include:

  • How Texas A&M University-Commerce is aligning institutional goals with the 60x30TX initiative
  • How to support both student and instructor success within a CBE model
  • Keys to using online learning to support a CBE approach
  • Best practices for institutions exploring CBE programs and other strategic initiatives
