MindEdge Releases White Paper on Competency Based Education
December 30, 2015
MindEdge has released “Online Learning and Competency Based Education,” a white paper exploring how institutions of higher education are adopting new approaches to preparing students for a changing world of work. Download the CBE white paper here.
Competency-based education (CBE) is an approach that seeks to measure what students have learned and how well they have mastered specific skills or competencies, without worrying about how much time they’ve spent in a traditional classroom setting.
How can online learning facilitate CBE? Which specific tools and functionality help in meeting the needs of institutions of higher education that want to offer competency-based learning?
MindEdge’s white paper considers those questions and offers some advice based on MindEdge Learning’s experience serving the country’s leading CBE schools.
MindEdge, a learning company based in Waltham, MA, provides leadership, management, communication, and educational solutions for organizations to help them meet their objectives.
