Why Competencies? The Future of Learning and Work

Competency-based education. Competency-based learning. Competency-based assessments. Competency-based hiring. The competency movement is pushing the future of higher education and its relationship to learning and work, but why competencies, why now, and what does this mean for us? The direction of the competency movement and its impact on higher education is examined, while exploring the interconnectedness of learning and work. Examples of current practices and applications will be shared.

CBE LAS Fusion

This presentation explores the intersection of competencies essential to be successful in both furthering education and the workplace. This presentation provides background from a 2-year collaboration between an academic team at ESC and the Academy of Hope (AoH), Washington, D.C. and the competency-based curricular model. The team developed a series of courses for AoH using this curricular model, where by subject matter is learned through activities focused on key competencies identified as essential for students’ academic and professional success. We illustrate how this model can be applied in the redesign of an Earth Science course to promote student-directed learning and to strengthen competencies in critical thinking, science research, and communication.

What can we learn from one of the leaders/pioneers of CBE

In this presentation, we will take a look at one of the several CBE models – College for America. We will review its components and "how to's". We will discuss what can be adapted from this model and how we can use this model or its components if we were to build our own CBE program(s).

Easing Transition: Using CBE to Orient Faculty to New Systems

In this session, we will demonstrate that Competency-Based education can be used to train faculty on a variety of topics. We will focus on one specific program: a new self-paced option for Self-Service Banner training. We will model this particular program to show that faculty with diverse experience levels can benefit from this type of training. We will also discuss the positives of using a CBE method of training for faculty more generally.

STEM Workforce Development in a CBE Model

This project will discuss the planning and  designing of a series of competency-based resources that will facilitate workforce development and learning for STEM students, with a particular focus on those students who have cognitive disabilities. This project will serve as a proof of concept for a larger-scale project addressing needs for STEM workforce development for all SUNY students and examine CBE as an instructional model for students with some forms of cognitive disability.
