Competency-Based Education (CBE) is not new, but post-secondary institutions are investigating and implementing CBE programs at an accelerating pace in an effort to align student demands for more flexible learning models and business demands to address workplace and industry changes.  Over 600 post-secondary institutions have identified themselves as pursuing CBE; many using competency-based learning (CBL) design to reimagine courses and curriculum, with a small number successfully launching full certificate or degree programs.

In this webinar, we will:

1. Explore and detail how A.T. Still Health Sciences University (ATSU) worked with Sagence Learning to create a model to guide the design, development, delivery, and support of ATSU competency-based methodologies.

2. Explain how ATSU and Sagence Learning established a process and plan to create and launch ATSU's first certificate in Behavioral Health.

3. Learn a general framework of how a university insured that its CBE initiative got the internal agreement and effort needed to successfully launch a CBE program.

CBE initiatives should begin by imagining the college or university CBE institutional model. A well considered model will insure you create processes and plans that bring everyone together with a common "language" and purpose that aligns to your institution's mission, reputation, and student expectations; and results in students enrolling in and graduating from CBE courses and programs. 

The model, process, and plan draws upon CBL best practices and industry expertise to insure that stakeholders, institutional leaders, business partners, and participants at all levels are clear about the vision, academic requirements, and differentiators of CBL programs.
