Special Edition Webinar
iNACOL brings you free Special Edition webinars throughout the year based on topics of interest for the broader online and blended learning community. Past topics have included Competency Education webinars, iNACOL’s membership update, and how to start an online program.
An Introduction to Competency-based Education
Friday, April 3, 2015, 10:00-11:00 AM ET
The concept is simple: learning is best measured by students demonstrating mastery, rather than how much time spent in a classroom. Competency-based education is a fundamental shift toward learner-centered systems.
Join Susan Patrick and Sandra Dop for a special webinar about trends and elements in implementing competency-based education. Policy and practice considerations will be discussed, including highlighting Iowa’s work in building capacity in the state, districts and schools, as well as lessons learned through their journey of planning, policy, and program implementation.
This webinar will cover key considerations and an overview for educators on competency-based education systems.
Susan Patrick, iNACOL & Sandra Dop, Iowa Department of Education
Registration is available until 10 AM (Eastern) the day of the webinar. World Clock
