An Overview of K-12 Competency-Based Education for Education Leaders and Teachers

The concept behind competency education is simple: learning is best measured by students demonstrating mastery of learning targets with the supports they need, rather than the number of hours spent in a classroom with variable amounts of actual learning. However, the definition of competency education is often misunderstood or misused. In this webinar competency education experts and CompetencyWorks co-founders, Susan Patrick and Chris Sturgis, will walk participants through an overview of competency education in K-12 education systems. They will look at the definition of competency education, discuss why districts and schools are making this transition, and explore how competency-based approaches more effectively prepare students for post-secondary success.

This free webinar will take place on April 27th at 3 p.m. EDT. Preregistration is required.
