3:00 pm - 4:30 pm    Faculty Seminar - Competency Based Education: Separating Fact from Fiction

Seminar/Symposium / College of Agriculture and Applied Sciences

Featuring: Matthew Pellish, Senior Director of Strategic Research and Education, Education Advisory Board MOOCs are a thing of the past, and many parties within and outside of higher education (media, government entities, foundations) have turned their attention to competency-based education (CBE). As with MOOCs, the hope is that CBE will lower costs, increase access, and improve outcomes—and the fear is that those who don't adopt it will lose relevance and market share if new programs scale quickly. Based on interviews with over 100 experts and practitioners, this presentation aims to separate the hype from what's really working. We examine CBE's primary objectives, the most prevalent myths in the field, and which factors are likely to accelerate CBE's competitive threat to current higher education programs.
