CBE uses a different lens to measure student learning.
Competency-based education (CBE) models are focused around the student, not around the academic calendar. Join like-minded colleagues and peers for a day of continuing education to talk about the business processes and curricular redesigns that support more flexible educational programs. Instead of a program delivery model scheduled solely around seat time, CBE degree programs and certificates are organized around student mastery of content knowledge—and this becomes the crux of the change for business processes. Within the University of North Carolina public university system, there are currently four CBE pilots in development: two degrees at Winston Salem State University in the School of Health Sciences; a jointly developed and delivered Lateral Entry Teacher Certification through the Schools of Education at UNC Chapel Hill and NC State University; and finally, one degree-completion program at NC Central University in teacher education. The NC Community College system is also developing CBE degrees and programs, as are other partners in the SCRIP grant (Southeastern CBE Regional Innovation Partnership) funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Highlighting 16 concurrent sessions, Sandbox ColLABorative Executive Director Dr. Michelle Weise (co-author, Hire Education) will present the opening keynote. Also, always informative, insightful, and entertaining CBEN (CBE Network) Executive Director Charla Long will return again this year for a lunchtime keynote presentation. Representatives from the Southeast CBE Regional Innovation Partnerhip (SCRIP) funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, will release results of a year-long effort to identify CBE substantive change issues with SACS-COC, arriving at a common language for CBE discussions. Leading up to the Summit, we will publish pre-conference information through a continuous learning platform under the hastag #CBE2017, and UNC Press will publish post-conference proceedings as both an open access digital product and a downloadable PDF.
