At this year's NSBA 2017 Annual Conference on March 26, Virgel Hammonds and Susan Patrick will present “A National Perspective on Competency-Education.” The concept behind competency-based education is simple: learning is best measured by students demonstrating mastery of learning targets, rather than the number of hours spent in a classroom. Attendees of this session will discover national trends, the implications and opportunities for K-12 competency-based education (CBE) and personalized learning within ESSA, and how leaders are using new models to redesign the education system around actual student learning.

At this year’s National School Boards Association 2017 Annual Conference on March 26, KnowledgeWorks Chief Learning Officer Virgel Hammonds will join Susan Patrick, CEO of iNACOL, to present a session called “A National Perspective on Competency-Education.”

Explore the landscape of competency-based education in the session, including:

  • What is CBE? Working 5-Part Definition of CBE
  • What are the trends in the field of CBE?
  • How do you begin conversations about CBE in your community?
  • What is the role of technology in supporting CBE?
