Questions About Competency Education? We’ve Got Answers

When encountering something new, it’s normal to have questions – especially when that something has the potential to change how we teach and learn. Personalized, competency-based education is a powerful tool for reshaping education, but there’s a lot of misinformation out there about what it is and what it means for educators and students.

That’s why we’ve created a new resource to help with some of the most frequently asked questions about competency education, paired with answers that will help foster the kinds of open, essential dialogues that are necessary for its success. If someone has ever asked you:

  • Will students spend all day on a computer?
  • What role does the teacher play in a competency-based classroom?
  • Is CBE just another workforce model?

Then we can help.
