America/New York

Take the first steps toward implementing competency-based education at your institution.

Gain the information you need to successfully develop and manage competency-based education (CBE) at your institution. You will learn from the experiences of academic leaders who have championed CBE efforts at their own institutions. This is the only conference where you will have working time to rethink curriculum design, student support, faculty involvement, and administrative processes as you embark on a CBE initiative.

“This conference provided attendees with the knowledge, skills, and tools to begin CBE at their own institutions.”
- Pat LaGrow, Associate Vice President of Academic Affairs, University of Central Oklahoma

Examples Rooted in Practice, Not Theory

We continuously work to bring you the most innovative and practical examples of CBE in higher education. Join us to hear about the following institutions who are on the leading edge of the CBE movement:

  • City University of Seattle
  • Kentucky Community and Technical College System
  • Lipscomb University
  • Salt Lake Community College
  • University of Maryland University College

Conference Workshops

Pre-Conference: Remaking General Education for the 21st Century Using Competency-Based Education

Nowhere does competency-based learning have more promise or potential than in reshaping general education across our nation’s universities, yet the challenges of identifying and measuring specific competencies are not insignificant. This workshop will present lessons from two emerging models.

Post-Conference: Prior Learning Assessment (PLA)

To retain and graduate more adult students, institutions are using PLA to award college-level credit for work and life experiences. This workshop will address how PLA can be designed to translate experiential learning into college credit.

Who Should Attend

Academic leaders tasked with implementing and managing CBE curriculum are encouraged to attend this conference with their committee. You and your team will leave with the tools you need to creatively develop, implement, and manage your CBE programs. When two attendees register from the same institution, a third registration is offered at 50% off.
